SJSU Grad Slam
The College of Graduate Studies is excited to announce that applications are now available for the 2023 Grad Slam Competition! We encourage students from all disciplines to apply (students graduating in Fall 2022 are also eligible). Whether you’re building a widget, chasing fires, or unearthing discoveries in art history, we want to hear from you! Applications are due by February 20, 2023.
What is Grad Slam?
Grad Slam at San José State University is a campus-wide competition for the best three-minute research talk given by a graduate student. Speakers are judged by a panel based on their ability to successfully engage a non-specialist audience while communicating key details about their research.
Benefits of participation include the opportunity to showcase your research or creative activity, engage in professional development activities through our curated public speaking workshops, obtain a professionally filmed video of your presentation to add to your LinkedIn account for employers to view, and win cash prizes ($1,200 for 1st place, $800 for 2nd place, and $500 for audience choice)!
Attend our Information Sessions!
Sign up to attend the next information sessions on December 7 from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. (PST) to learn more about this unique opportunity and to ask questions. More workshops will be added in December and January. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn7GpujMtlU

SPARC Holiday festivities
SPARC student clinician dream team this semester
Left to right – Theo, Myles, Alex (CDS undergrad, now grad), Eve, Pauline, Jayme (CDS undergrad, now grad)- missing Alejandra in this picture.
These students worked very hard with their creativity, flexibility, and perseverance.
Their fantastic creativity and clinical work throughout the semester included Alex and Eve (who led a moving, social-justice inspired Aphasia Book Club that got us all hooked), Theo, Pauline, and Jayme (who led one of the best renditions of aphasia choir we have had and a perfect return from the pandemic to live music), and Myles and Alejandra (who facilitated a novel Therapeutic Gaming group ending with a full-of-laughs finale of White Elephant- clients have already said they want this group to continue).
Every client and their family have expressed how much it meant to have this space, to return from the pandemic, and how grateful they were to our clinicians

The Early Childhood Institute
The Early Childhood Institute remains committed to supporting the delivery of equitable, responsive, and inclusive care and education for young children. The Early Childhood Institute 2023 Professional Meeting is designed to address the questions professionals are asking. Presentations and panel discussions with faculty/researchers, policymakers, and leaders from the field will engage the audience in conversations about the focus and impact of policy changes on both early learning programs and practices and the professionals working with young children.
In order to put together a first-class learning and networking experience for professionals and students to be held in Spring 2023, we have launched a Day of Giving crowdfunding campaign to ask for support from advocates for early childhood like you.
There are lots of ways you can help with our campaign. Follow this link to find out more!
The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA)
NSSLHA is raising money to support student members to attend a state-wide professional conference as an effort to support our student scholars, inspire more students, and diversify the profession to better serve our communities. The California Speech Language Hearing Association (CSHA) holds an annual conference that targets students and professionals in the field with the latest research and professional education opportunities. This is a great opportunity for students to network, and learn about the many ways our profession contributes to the wellbeing of those with communication disorders and differences. This has traditionally been the venue that brings inspiration and excitement in students to continue with their education into the profession.
This will be the first year since the pandemic that we will be able to send our students to this conference, but only with your help!

Lofgren presented a $500,000 check for the San Jose State University’s Healthy Development Community Clinic
Lofgren presented a $500,000 check for the San Jose State University’s Healthy Development Community Clinic for their joint project with the East Side Union School District that provides families with healthcare services, while also helping advance graduate students’ education through in-the-field professional experience.
“I find it inspiring that SJSU’s College of Education is taking advantage of their expertise on campus – the professors and students focused on child development, speech pathology, therapy, and more – to help underserved children, adolescents, parents, and families in San Jose,” said Lofgren. “It’s a win-win-win – for families, graduate students, and our community as a whole.”
“We are very grateful to Rep. Zoe Lofgren for her support of the Healthy Development Community Clinic,” shared Heather Lattimer, Dean of San Jose State University’s College of Education. “This federal investment will allow us to significantly expand the education, mental health, and wellness services that the HDCC is able to offer to children and families in the East San José community.”
