Welcome to the Student Advocacy Center

SAC Logo -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 or wish to file a complaint. 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.
