Welcome to the Student Advocacy Center

It’s College. Stuff Happens. We get it.


Mission Statement:

The mission of the Student Advocacy Center (SAC) is to provide free and confidential advising to American University students who have allegedly violated university policy. Our advocates are experts on the Student Conduct and Academic Integrity codes, as well as corresponding policies and disciplinary procedures. We use this expertise to ensure that our clients have the information they need to effectively defend themselves and are treated with respect and dignity throughout the disciplinary process.

Services We Provide:

Student advocates are available for consolation during all stages of the disciplinary process. In addition to helping students prepare their case, student advocates may also accompany their clients to disciplinary proceedings as a supportive guide.

Walk-In Hours and Appointments:

Between Monday, August 25 and Friday August 29, the Student Advocacy Center will be open by appointment only. Appointments can be scheduled by emailing sac@ausg.org or using the “contact us” function on this site. All emails will be answered within 24 hours by the director.

Finalized hours of operation for fall 2014 will be posted by Friday, August 29.

The Student Advocacy Center is located in MGC 270A.
