Students Obtaining Leadership y Latinxs United in Navigating Academia (SOL y LUNA) is a Chicanx/Latinx Holistic Student Support Program that was established in 1999 as part of the Student Recruitment and Retention Center. SOL represents our outreach efforts, and LUNA represents our retention efforts.
SOL y LUNA provides student led, student initiated programs to support educational attainment for Chicanx/Latinx students. We provide holistic support that emphasizes community awareness, advocacy, cultural affirmation, and academic success. We outreach to middle school and high school students providing cultural awareness, academic resources, and mentorship to promote a college going culture and encourage them to pursue higher education. On campus, we seek to increase the number and overall retention and graduation of Chicanx/Latinx students at UC Davis, by fostering a healthy supportive community that encourages individuals to be agents of social change in their time as undergraduates.
