The possibilities are open. And the path starts here.

The University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences is a place for aspiring leaders, for educators who want to make an impact, for those who believe idealism can be channeled into real change, for those who know the value of communication and collaboration. While our school includes multiple programs and departments, a few foundational elements resound through every student's experience.

Here, you'll learn to be a catalyst for change, whatever your career or field of study. You'll be accepted for who you are. You'll be mentored, encouraged, challenged, led and listened to. You'll become a better global citizen. You'll build lifelong connections.

Whether you seek to become a family therapist, an educator, a nonprofit director or any other career track within SOLES' realm, know that you're in the right place for dreamers driven to make an impact for good.
