Francisco Solis, J.D. interim president

We're pleased to welcome Francisco Solis, interim president at San Antonio College (SAC) back to AFIT. Francisco previously served as SAC’s interim president following the departure of Dr. Robert Vela in 2022. That same year, Francisco also served as an AFIT learning partner, supporting our learning theme, “Talent & the Future of Work: Leading with Happiness and Humanity,” during which he shared lessons learned from SAC’s innovation journey, which led to the College receiving a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2018 and winning the Aspen Prize in 2021.   

Francisco brings a wealth of experience and leadership to his role. Having previously served as Interim President and in various key positions, including professor, Dean, and Director, Francisco has been integral to SAC's success. His contributions span from academic excellence to strategic planning, notably shaping SAC's accreditation report and aiding in award-winning applications. 

Francisco earned an Associate of Arts and Sciences from San Antonio College, a Bachelor of Arts from St. Edward’s University, and a Doctorate in Law from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law.
