Welcome

Welcome to the Student Advocacy Center at San Antonio College!

Providing Resources... Building Hope


About the Center

The Student Advocacy Center provides social services resources to the San Antonio College community.

Officially opened in late Fall 2016, the Center serves students, faculty and staff with a variety of services and programs.

The Center’s mission aims to provide social services resources to all. However, there is a deeper vision for the Center. With just a little bit of help, students who might otherwise resort to dropping out of school can persist to complete a degree or certificate.

Led by social work professor Lisa Black, LMSW, and Dr. Tiffany Cox, Chair of the Criminal Justice/Sociology/Social Work Department at SAC, the Student Advocacy Center is also a learning laboratory.

Some 10 social work interns from local universities (many of whom have graduated from San Antonio College’s social work program) work in the Center, providing case management and the other services.
