Student Spotlight | James Chow

The SJSU Lurie College of Education provides a range of grants to students to support their academic endeavors to become transformative educators, counselors, therapists, and leaders.  We spoke with SJSU Lurie College of Education Communicative Disorders and Sciences student James Chow, who received support to conduct research on alternative methods to help people with aphasia communicate with their medical providers.  Listen to James’ insights below!

SJSU Lurie College of Education Communicative Disorders and Sciences Student James Chow

“Something challenging or surprising that I’ve seen and experienced this year working with this project is just how little resources we have for adults in geriatrics with these types of communicative disorders such as like aphasia or dementia. It’s also been really neat to be able to be in the front lines in the research clinic downstairs, where these adults are experiencing the same kind of issues like, “They just took away my driver’s license, how do I combat that?” or, “I don’t know what my doctor is telling me like I want to participate in that”.   Being able to see all these real challenges that they’re having makes me want to pursue this further.”

Lurie College of Education Impresses in Best Graduate School Rankings

This story was originally posted on the SJSU Newsroom website by Robin McElhatton.

SJSU Lurie College of Education 2021 U.S. News & World Report

San Jose State’s Connie L. Lurie College of Education had an impressive showing in the 2021 U.S. News and World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings.

The rankings, released on March 17, show the Lurie College placed in these four categories:

  • Tied for #2 among CSU schools of education
  • In the top 5 for schools of education in the Bay Area
  • Tied for #16 among schools of education in California
  • Debuted at #158 for best education schools in the country

“All of us in the Lurie College of Education are proud that we have been recognized for our efforts to prepare transformative educators, counselors, therapists, school and community leaders,” said Lurie College Dean Heather Lattimer. “We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community partners to expand our college’s opportunities and impact in the region!”

The magazine bases its ranking of best graduate schools of education on two types of data: reputational surveys of deans and other academic officials and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. They also assess both the preparedness of a school’s incoming students and the career or academic outcomes of a school’s graduates.

Statement to SJSU Lurie College Students from Dean Heather Lattimer | March 17, 2020

Good evening Lurie College Students —

In response to the County of Santa Clara’s shelter-in-place order and President Papazian’s instructions, the Lurie College of Education is now fully virtual.  Although we are now in separate physical spaces, our staff and faculty continue to be very much present in our support for our students.  We care deeply about you, your academic success, and your physical, financial, and emotional well being.

Staying Connected — This sudden move to a “virtual university” is new territory for us too…. We’re working to create virtual spaces for collaboration and connection within and beyond courses (if you have ideas on how to make this happen, please send them our way!).  You can also stay connected by contacting any of the offices listed below.  This information is also listed on the contact page on our website — You may want to bookmark the page for future reference.  We’ve arranged for on-campus phone numbers to be forwarded to staff and faculty cell phones so that we can be available for you at any time.  Please reach out with questions, concerns, or suggestions.  We are here for you!

Getting Help — If you are experiencing concerns about your health and well being, food or housing insecurity, financial stress, or anxiety, you are not alone.  The traumas associate with this global pandemic are real and impact many in our community.  We want to help!
  • Our Lurie College of Education Student Success Center team is available by phone and email.  They are trained in a holistic support model and prepared to respond to a diverse range of concerns.
  • SJSU’s Student Health Center and Counseling and Psychological Services also offer a full range of services remotely.
  • For those experiencing food insecurity, the Spartan Food Pantry remains open (please check hours).
  • For tenants who are worried about being able to pay rent amidst the COVID-19 crisis, the Cities of San Jose and San Francisco have adopted a temporary ban on evictions; Governor Newsom is encouraging cities throughout the state of California to adopt similar policies. Please connect with the Student Success Center or SJSU Cares if you need help pushing back agains a landlord who is threatening eviction.
  • For those who are struggling to pay bills and stay in school, Lurie College offers “Hardship Grants”. These one-time grants can provide up to $500 to cover unanticipated expenses and help you stay on track toward your degree.  Thanks to some generous donors, we’ve been able to increase the amount available this spring.  Please don’t feel that you are alone if you are struggling.  Reach out.  We want to help!

Looking Ahead — There is a lot of uncertainty right now.  In her Monday evening message (below), Pres. Papazian announced that online instruction will continue through the end of the Spring 2020 semester.  We hope to be able open campus back up for face-to-face advising and events before then, but will need to follow the directions of our state and county officials.  We know that many of you, especially graduating seniors and final year graduate students, have been looking forward to commencement.  I’m hopeful that we will be able to celebrate commencement as currently scheduled on May 21, 2020.  You’ve worked hard, experienced much, and the pomp and circumstance of a commencement celebration is a well-earned rite of passage!  Unfortunately, I can’t yet promise that we’ll be able to hold an in-person commencement event on 5/21.  What I can promise however, is that when this is over (and that is a when – not an if), Lurie College will have a full-blown, in person commencement celebration …  and it will be awesome!

Lurie College is a family and we are all in this together!  Thank you for supporting one another over these last weeks and for your bravery in facing the adversity of this moment.  We are here for you. Please reach out and let us know how we can help.

With Gratitude — Heather

Statement to SJSU Lurie College Students from Dean Heather Lattimer | March 14, 2020

Dear Lurie College of Education Students –

Many, many thanks to all of you for your strength, flexibility, generosity, and leadership during these challenging times. I’ve been so impressed by students who have stepped up to help create calm and consistent learning environments in your field placements, offered support for peers learning to navigate online learning platforms, and reached out to faculty and staff with thoughtful questions and suggestions. Your response to adversity speaks volumes about your personal strength and your potential for leadership in our schools, clinics, and communities. Thank you!!!

A few notes as we prepare to re-launch classes during this coming week —

Field Experiences — Many of our field placement sites have closed. Most closures are currently planned for 3-4 weeks. We will continue to work with our placement providers and monitor future placement options.

  • Students in Credential / Licensure Programs — For those in credential and licensure programs that require minimum numbers of hours and/or performance assessments, closures pose particular challenges. We are working with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and other licensing agencies to explore options. CTC has told us that it is their intent that everyone who is on target to complete a credential this year be able to do so. Exactly what this will look like is not yet known — Options for completing field experiences could include (1.) returning to placement sites when schools and clinics reopen, (2.) working alongside field experience mentors in online environments if placement sites move to online instruction / therapy, (3.) alternative assignments or simulation activities. We will keep you posted as we know more. If you have questions / concerns about the individual status of your program, please reach out to your program coordinator or department chair.
  • Speech Language Pathology Master’s Students — Some of our private and clinic placements remain open. If you are in the second year of the SLP program, we will work with you individually to determine how best to proceed. Please contact Drs. Mahendra and Quach.
  • Pre-Credential Students — Good news for our undergraduates who are planning to apply to credential programs this year. The Chancellor’s Office has temporarily suspended the required 45 pre-professional hours usually required to apply to a credential program. Saul Ruiz is available to help you navigate the application process. Please reach out to him directly.

Online Learning — Our faculty have spent the last week preparing to move classes online and we are excited about the possibilities ahead. That said, we fully anticipate that there will be challenges with the technology not working as hoped or the lesson not going as planned. It typically takes 6 months to move a class from on-site to online and we are asking faculty to accomplish this feat in 6 days. We are in this together as we all work to ensure that your learning continues and your progress to degree is on pace. Thank you in advance for your patience and persistence. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your instructors or advisors. We all want you to succeed! Please let us know if you require additional support or modifications due to individual circumstances.

Learning Supports — SJSU’s campus remains open and there are multiple people standing by to support you. Supports to ensure your success include the following:

  • The Lurie College Student Success Center has study space, computers for student use, and advising support available.
    • Both Sweeney Hall 106 (SSC) and 446 (SAC) are open and have been configured to allow for social distancing. We will open additional rooms as needed.
    • Academic advising is taking place in-person and virtually. Please make a note of your location preference in the comments when scheduling your appointment.
    • Upcoming workshops in the SSC will be held virtually! Please visit our calendar for access links.
    • Janene, Krista, Saul, and Annie are also great listeners and problem solvers. Please reach out by email, phone (408-924-2700), or in person if we can help you in any way!
  • SJSU Library’s Student Computer Services has laptops, iPads, headsets, and other tech resources available for take out. The library also provides computer labs and quiet study spaces. In addition, the Clark Hall Computer Lab and the ballrooms in the Student Union will have quiet study spaces available.
  • The Writing Center has suspended in-person tutoring, but is expanding their online options. Students can make appointments for online tutoring here.
  • The Accessible Education Center has staff available to support students with disabilities or learning challenges as we all navigate this new learning environment. If you have concerns, please reach out directly. If you do not yet have documented accommodations and would like to do so, they have designed a process specifically to help students who need support learning online. Learn more at sjsu.edu/aec/students/covid19

Additional Student Supports — We recognize that this is a stressful time. In addition to the services listed below, please reach out to faculty, staff, and administrators here in the college if you need support. We are here for you!

Thank you again for all of your care and support for one another and our larger Lurie College community.  We certainly did not expect that Spring 2020 would look quite like this… but thanks to our amazing students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners, I am confident we will come through this with strength and resilience!

If you have any additional questions, concerns, or suggestions or if you just need to talk, please email us at luriecollege@sjsu.edu.

With Gratitude —

Helpful Updates to Lurie College Teaching Credential Programs

Due to the current suspension of in-person classes due to COVID-19 across the CSU system, the Executive Order N-25-20 issued by Governor Gavin Newsom requiring adherence to social distancing guidelines, as well as the growing number of school districts that are closing and moving to alternative modes of instruction, the CSU Office of the Chancellor has issued a temporary, limited suspension of the requirement in EO 1077 regarding 45 hours of documented field experience in a K-12 classroom as an admission requirement. The temporary suspension will be reviewed at the beginning of the 2020-21 academic year.  View the memo from the CSU Chancellor’s office.

The upcoming Applicant Orientation Sessions will also take place online:

  • Multiple Subject Credential Program | Tuesday, March 17, 4-5:30pm
  • Single Subject Credential Program | Wednesday, March 18, 4-5pm

If you are a current SJSU student or employee, you can access Zoom at sjsu.zoom.us.  Otherwise, you will need to create a Zoom account beforehand.

Statement to SJSU Lurie College Students from Dean Heather Lattimer | March 9, 2020

Good Evening Lurie College Students —

Pres. Papazian recently announced that the university is moving courses to distributed or fully online instruction beginning March 16 and that for the next four days (3/10 – 3/13) we will be suspending in-person classes in order to provide time for faculty and staff to prepare for the transition.  Visit the SJSU Health Advisories webpage for more information.

I wanted to follow up with some additional information specific to the SJSU Lurie College of Education —

Field Experiences: Field experiences are critical components of your academic program and, in many cases, a minimum number of hours are required for credentialing and licensure. We anticipate that most field experiences will continue this week and into the foreseeable future (see details below). Exceptions to this expectation include: (a.) If you have a reasonable concern that participating in a field experience will pose an inappropriate risk to your own health or the health of others. (b.). If you have had any known exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. (c.) If your placement has closed down due to health concerns and/or is limiting access to students. If you believe that you fall into any of these three categories, please contact your supervisor, instructor, and/or program coordinator.

    • Off-campus field experiences will continue — If you are in student teaching, a practicum placement, internship, or other clinical experience as part of your degree or credential program, you are expected to continue in your placement this week and for the foreseeable future. Although the CTC has recently announced that there may be some flexibility if schools close, they continue to expect that students will participate in field experiences as long as schools remain open. I have been in contact with the Santa Clara County Office of Education Superintendent, Dr. Mary Ann Dewan; at this point, she expects schools to continue with normal operations.
    • ChAD lab preschool will continue — The toddler and preschool lab schools operated by the Department of Child and Adolescent Development (ChAD) will continue to operate this week and into the foreseeable future. If you are currently teaching in this school as part of your ChAD degree program, you are expected to continue in this assignment. This experience is an essential part of your learning and the children and families of the school depend on your classroom leadership. Please confirm your continued participation with your instructor(s).
    • CDS Clinics are suspended this week — We will suspend CDS Clinic operations this week while we explore remote delivery options for some of the clinic experiences. Since some of our CDS clinics serve vulnerable populations, including elderly individuals and individuals with compromised immune systems, it is appropriate to explore how TeleHealth services might be utilized to continue to provide services and support CDS student learning. We will also be looking at simulation options and may continue to provide some face-to-face services. More information will be provided later this week.

On-Campus Supports: As noted in the President’s message, the SJSU campus and all services will remain open. Specific supports that may be of assistance include the following:

    • The Lurie College Student Success Center — Janene, Krista, and Saul are here to help! If you have questions about how to access online learning, need access to a computer or wifi, need academic support, need a referral for additional services, or just need a place to hang out, please call or stop by. They will also be continuing with scheduled writing tutor hours, workshops, and drop-in advising. Location: Sweeney Hall (SH) 106 Office hours: Monday – Thursday | 8:00am-6:00pm; Friday | 8:00am-12:00pm Phone: 408-924-2700 Email: luriecollege-successcenter@sjsu.edu
    • Accessible Education Center — If you have specific concerns about being able to access online content as we look ahead to transitioning to remote teaching and learning, please connect with support providers in AEC. Although every effort will be made by instructors to ensure accessibility we know that the speed of this transition may lead to some challenges. Please let your instructor know if you anticipate challenges and take advantage of the resources provided by AEC. Administration Building 110. 408-924-6000 aec-info@sjsu.edu
    • Counseling and Psychological Services — A public health concern can lead to feelings of depression, panic, and helplessness. If you are feeling overwhelmed, please know that there are many people in the college and across the university who care and want to help. Please reach out to faculty, staff, and administrators directly or contact CAPS at (408) 924-5910 and counseling.services@sjsu.edu.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to respond to evolving conditions. Please know that we are working to balance two very real priorities — We want to protect the health and well being of our students and community, and we also want to ensure that you are continuing to make progress toward your degrees and credentials.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out at luriecollege@sjsu.edu or call 408-924-3600.
