General Academic Advising

The SJSU Office of Research in partnership with the SJSU Research Foundation provides undergraduate and graduate research students the opportunity to present their work and compete for selection as SJSU representatives at the annual CSU Student Research Competition. The research presented should be appropriate to the student’s discipline and career goals. Proprietary research is excluded. Each college may send forward a total of four student projects (undergraduate and/or graduate) representing outstanding research or creative activity to the university-wide competition.

In this episode, host Mark Felton sits down with Department of Teacher Education faculty members Luis Poza and Eduardo Muñoz-Muñoz, who are leading our new bilingual authorization pathway, Bilingüismo y Justicia. They are taking action to respond to the evolving needs in K-12 districts throughout California by preparing future teachers to serve in dual immersion and bilingual settings. We discuss questions such as:
“What would it look like to leverage the resources of multilingual students in schools rather than silence them?”
“How do we prepare teachers to be change makers in bilingual classrooms?”

Shoutout to SJSU Lurie College student Aiden Hill, whose second edition of his book, The Midnight Stranglers, was recently published! Here’s a synopsis:
In 2008 Aiden Hill was diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition-severe obstructive sleep apnea, also known as “the midnight strangler.” But after he lost his employer-based insurance he soon encountered a new group of “health care stranglers.” These special interests were bent on using the cover of darkness to deny coverage and gouge him while he was at his most vulnerable. Part One of The Midnight Stranglers: a Personal Quest for Health Care Transparency chronicles this struggle, its intersection with the passage of Obamacare, and the Tea Party reaction. Aiden was so scarred by his experience that he joined the health care reform movement to help bring about change. Part Two discusses the disappointments he encountered as he worked for the State of California to implement its version of Obamacare (Covered California), and why he now believes the insurance exchanges won’t deliver affordable care. The book ends with a call for greater transparency across the entire health care spectrum, and what we as individual consumers and taxpayers can do to make it happen.
