The Avanza Student Engagement Center in I4-203 (located on the second floor of the Student Services Building), is an established space aimed in supporting student on-campus engagement. The Peer Navigators Program is housed here, allowing peer-to-peer interactions and mentoring to take place. The center also offers events focused on leadership development, socio-cultural experience, and academic support. It promotes Latino culture and explores Latino identity and self-awareness. Existing programs such as Puente will use this center, as well as Chicano/Chicana Studies faculty, thus creating a central location for Latino student support.
Faculty, staff, and students can request to use the center for workshops and other campus events using this link: www.sdmesa.edu/events
