Avanza engagement Center
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the District's highest priority has continued to be the health and safety of its employees and students.  In recognition of the current spike in cases largely due to the Omicron variant, the San Diego Community College District has decided to work remotely for the month of January.  
In keeping with this, Mesa College will temporarily provide student services remotely beginning Monday, January 3, 2022 through Friday, January 28, 2022.
At this time, the Peer Navigators will continue to provide full assistance remotely.
Please visit the resource page HERE for information on contacting Student Services departments. We are here to help and appreciate your patience as we move forward with a phased-in approach back to campus.


To contact us, call the office line at (619) 388-2757 and leave a voicemail message. We will be checking the office's voicemail regularly, but please be aware that there may still be a small delay in response. You may also email us at and we will respond within 1-2 business days.

Avanza engagement center

¡Bienvenidos!  welcome

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.
