Solstice exists to create greater cross-cultural understanding through transformative travel and immersion-based learning.
WE CELEBRATE DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT AND BACKGROUND
At Solstice, we respect and celebrate others for who they are while recognizing that we can improve ourselves and those around us every day. We build one another up, and we achieve strength through mutual respect and diversity.
WE PUT THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE FIRST
We are a student first, team second, financial-performance third organization. Everything we do is with long-term orientation. By taking care of our students, faculty partners, and fellow team members, Solstice continues to grow and remain in good health.
Our purpose as an organization is to serve our students and institutional partners while fostering positive and mutually beneficial relationships, both locally and globally.
WE GO THE EXTRA MILE
We go the extra mile in service of our students, faculty leaders, and one another. For many of our students and teammates, Solstice programs are seminal life experiences. By going above and beyond what is expected of us, we can leave a permanent, positive impact on one another and our communities.
WE ARE A COMMUNITY
Solstice fosters connections between people from around the world and from all walks of life, and we believe in principles of trust, reciprocity, and understanding. We help people from diverse backgrounds become acquainted and establish new communities along the way.
By staying true to our core values, every decision we make at Solstice becomes simpler. It is our responsibility as an organization—one entrusted with students’ learning outcomes—to communicate our values openly and live by them every day.
