Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation

San Antonio College has been at the forefront of a local effort to establish a Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Center in our city. In 2021, the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) selected San Antonio College as one of fifty-five institutions throughout the US to establish a center for TRHT. The center will acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the unique cultures, challenges, and advantages of each institution, to establish equity-minded practices that advance our students and communities by dismantling belief in the hierarchy of human values and confronting racism in our society. This work was made possible with funding from the Trellis Foundation.
