Hispanic Serving Institution
Avanza engagement center
The AVANZA Engagement Center (AVANZA) in I4-203 (located on the second floor of the Student Services Building), is an established space aimed in supporting student on-campus engagement. AVANZA is home to the Peer Navigator program, CRUISE participants, and provides the space necessary for mentoring to take place. It promotes Latinx culture and explores Latinx 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 Latinx student support. The center also offers events focused on leadership development, socio-cultural experience, and academic support.
AVANZA also houses a workshop area, which is open to Student Services workshops and events only. For more information, please contact: Alexi Balaguer
Cultural gathering areas, printing, in-house laptops, white boards, markers, and multiple lounge and study space.
