Advocacy Centers

Advocacy Centers at each of our five colleges provide our learners with fundamental resources as part of a district-wide commitment to student well-being and success.

Our advocacy centers help meet the physical, mental and emotional health needs of learners, equipping them to thrive in their studies, build meaningful relationships, and effectively navigate life in college and beyond.
