Student Affairs Office

Our Student Affairs team is here to help each of our students perform at their best, both inside and outside of the classroom.  At Southwest School of Art, we provide support and services that are designed to enhance our student's mental, emotional, and physical well being and we purposefully create opportunities for student engagement that adds to personal and professional development.  We believe in the power of a holistic education and encourage students to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular educational activities. With that in mind, we offer several opportunities throughout the year for students to gain new knowledge and skills that will assist them in becoming well-rounded and successful artists. These programs may include:

  • First-year experience workshops
  • Financial literacy workshops
  • Volunteer and community service opportunities
  • Holiday and social programs
  • Health and wellness programs
  • Career development workshops
  • Hot topics roundtables and multicultural programs
  • Civic engagement opportunities
