Student Opportunity Center

Student Opportunity Center (SOC) is the largest network of experiential and high-impact opportunities in the US. SOC pulls opportunity listings and student participation data from over 4000 aggregation sources/databases/websites. Once these listings are in one central place, SOC makes it easy to match students to opportunities, embed these opportunities into the curriculum, and track student outcomes. At campuses nationwide, SOC is the necessary technological infrastructure for scaling experiential learning and high-impact practices for every student.

Membership is free to all CSUMB students. All you need to register is your CSUMB email address. If prefer a tutorial, please contact Eric Barajas to get set up.
