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.

Contact your college’s Advocacy Center

To be an advocate is to be a supporter and cheerleader.

As an Alamo Colleges student, you have advocates rooting for you as you navigate challenges in and outside of the classroom because your circumstances don’t have to determine your success. Contact your college advocacy center today!
