School of Open learning (SOL) Centre, Kalindi College provides unique opportunities to the working women to pursue their dream for higher education and empowers them to excel in their respective fields. SOL in Kalindi was started in the academic year 2012 – 2013 and presently more than 2500 female students are attending classes. The Kalindi Centre offers B.A. (Prog.) to the students of I, II and III Year. In session 2019-20, semester mode system was adopted by SOL for the first-year classes of B.A. (Prog.) scheduled from September 2019. The II year and III-year classes have been scheduled in annual mode for session 2019-20. Till September 2019, Mr. Amit Gupta, Administrative Officer (Officiating) supervised SOL Centre of Kalindi College. After that Centre is successfully running under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Meena Charanda, Assistant Prof. Department of Political Science. From the year 2015-2016 to 2018-19, the SOL functions were decentralized and the college managed the SOL center at its own level including arrangement of teachers, time table, etc. But in 2019-20, appointment of faculty members and time table is being managed by the SOL itself. Classes for the students are held on Sundays and on public holidays, as per the schedule provided by SOL. The center provides academic, administrative and logistic support during Sundays and holidays and holds examination at the end of the session. The Centre has helped hundreds of women to realize their dream of higher education and will continue to do in future as well.
