Dr. Solon is a Full Professor who has taught in the Doctoral program at Saint Mary’s since its inception in 2010 and has designed and taught a wide variety of psychology courses both in the United States and abroad. She facilitates the monthly Student of Color Consultation meeting and mentors faculty newer to doctoral teaching who are from diverse ethnic and racial communities.
Dr. Solon sees teaching and learning as taking place within the context of relationships and believes that the highest good is to love, honor and protect others, particularly children and those who cannot protect themselves. She has learned over a long period of time that there is no such thing as self-sufficiency: we are all intensely and intrinsically interdependent. She teaches and practices from the perspective that every interaction has the potential to hurt or to heal and tries to fall as much on the healing side as possible.
Dr. Solon is an avid photographer, garden tender and music lover. She is involved with social justice work in her neighborhood in South Minneapolis and Nationally through organizational membership, financial support and direct action. She can regularly be seen in and around, on both sides of, the Mississippi River with her dogs walking, swimming or cross country skiing.
