Welcome (Back), Lurie College Students!

Dear Lurie College Students —

We are excited to have you join us for Spring 2022 semester!  As you prepare for the semester ahead, we wanted to reach out to share a few Lurie College-specific updates:
  1. All Lurie College courses will be online through Feb. 13, 2022.  Course instructors will reach out to registered students directly with more information about synchronous and asynchronous class meeting plans.
  2. Field experiences for Lurie College students will continue in the modality determined by our school and community partners.  We anticipate that most schools, clinics, and community-based programs remain open for in-person work and learning.  As long as our field partners continue to operate in person, we expect our students to be physically present in their field placements.
  3. Our Lurie College Student Success Center, department offices, and student support services continue to be open for both in person and virtual access.  Please check the relevant page(s) on our college website for hours, location, and contact information. 
  4. Study space and computer equipment are available.  If you need a quiet space to study and/or need access to wifi for online classes, you are welcome to use the study spaces on campus, including our student success center in Sweeney Hall 106 and study and collaboration room in Sweeney Hall 446.   If you need computer equipment or technical assistance to be able to access courses online, please contact our student success center.
  5. We will return to the planned Spring 2022 schedule beginning on Feb. 14.  Please make plans to be available for on-campus class meetings by arranging your work schedule, securing housing in the region, obtaining your parking pass or public transit pass,  getting your ID card (required to access buildings on campus), getting your booster vaccine, etc.  For classes that are listed as hybrid, please refer to the course syllabi in Canvas for more information on specific on-campus meeting dates.  You can also obtain this information from department administrative assistants and/or advisors in the student success center.  We are also planning to host a Cocoa and Coffee in the Courtyard event around this time, so stay tuned for more details.
Connect with Lurie College on social media to stay up to date with events in the College. More information on ways to connect and available resources can be found on the Lurie College blog.
Finally, we know that these changes to the start of the semester has added a layer of unpredictability to an already stressful time.  Our faculty, staff, and college leaders are here to support you.  Please prioritize your health and well being and contact our student success center team if you need help.
With appreciation,
Heather Lattimer, Dean
Marcos Pizarrro, Associate Dean

New Lurie College Higher Ed Leadership MA and Teaching Certificate Programs

SJSU Cesar Chavez Monument

Our new MA program prepares higher education leaders through an equity-minded praxis approach to engage in transformative thinking and practice with the goal of disrupting how power, in the form of racism, classism, sexism, and related oppressions intersect to (re)produce and sustain disparate higher educational opportunities.  The first cohort of our 1-year program will begin in Summer 2022.  Learn more about the program and how to apply by March 1 at sjsu.edu/edleadership/academics/highered-leadership

Our Higher Education Teaching Certificate focuses on developing postsecondary faculty’s culturally-sustaining and responsive pedagogical knowledge grounded in social justice, equity, and inclusion. Students will enroll in a foundations course that examines the development and knowledge of theories related to diversity, equity and inclusion in U.S. higher education; a teaching methods course grounded in culturally-sustaining pedagogies; and a teaching fieldwork experience where students will put into practice culturally-sustaining and responsive teaching methodologies.  The first cohort of our 9 unit program will begin in Summer 2022.  Learn more about the program and how to apply by April 1 at sjsu.edu/edleadership/academics/certificate

Lurie College Faculty Publishes Opinion Piece

Congratulations to Counselor Education department faculty Kyoung Mi Choi, who recently published “The Invisibility of International LGBTQ+ Students on U.S. Campuses” on Visible Magazine.

“Based on my personal and professional experiences, I offer the following suggestions for faculty and staff to support international LGBTQ+ students on campuses:

Become familiar with common issues of international LGBTQ+ individuals, including fear of consequences after returning home, unfamiliarity with LGBTQ+ terminology, difficulties in developing intimate relationships, lack of knowledge of resources, and legal issues.

Be knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ movements and advocacy activities around the globe. Create trust and build allyship with international students and gently invite them to discuss complex and sensitive topics by asking questions like, “What are the norms around gender and sexuality in your home country?” or “What kinds of culture clashes or new ideas might they be exposed to on campus?”

Lastly, be an advocate for international LGBTQ+ students. Develop comprehensive cultural competency training that increases the awareness of the unique needs of international LGBTQ+ students and make inclusive campus policies to protect those students legally and culturally while studying in U.S. higher education.”

Watch our Institute for Emancipatory Education Speaker Series: Dr. David Stovall

Watch out Institute for Emancipatory Education speaker series! Dr. David Stovall talks about the constructs of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Abolition to consider emancipatory education. If we are trying to create an education that liberates those who experience white supremacy in the form of isolation, marginalization, and dehumanization, we must be clear about the current socio-political moment. We must be willing to take away lessons of history to build a praxis (action and reflection in the world in order to change it) centered on the needs of our communities. Any struggle for change, time, space, and will is central moving forward.

Lurie College Faculty Publishes Advocacy Piece

Shoutout to Child and Adolescent Development faculty Robert Marx, who published “Collective Memory for Queer and Trans Liberation” in Visible Magazine!

“Collective memory and intergenerational connection are the healing antidote to the forces of capitalism, White supremacy, and heteropatriarchy that aim to keep us too busy and downtrodden to see our own capacity to upend systems that work for only a very few. Just as I learned about my grandmother’s memories and ways of navigating oppression, so too does learning the ways of life of our queer and trans ancestors offer us a way to radically alter the material conditions which govern our lives and limit us.”
