Listen to Dean Heather Lattimer on KQED

Our very own Lurie College Dean, Heather Lattimer is on KQED to talk about Teaching Tough Subjects!! We are so proud!

“When I was growing up, my father and I engaged in vigorous debates around the dinner table, often taking polar opposite positions on local and national issues. Sometimes those discussions led me to re-think my beliefs. Other times they reaffirmed them. Always they pushed me to learn and grow. And they strengthened the love and respect that my father and I felt for one another.”

Enter to Dine with the Dean

SJSU Lurie College of Education undergraduate, graduate, credential, and doctoral students can enter your name for a chance to join Dean Heather Lattimer and a group of students for great conversation and a complimentary meal each semester during the academic year!

Attendees will be selected at random – none of your responses in the RSVP form will affect whether or not you’re selected, but they will help Dean Lattimer learn a little bit about you before the meal if you are selected.

Those who are selected to dine with the dean will receive an email notification approximately 1 week before each meal if once they’ve been randomly selected. Those who aren’t selected for a meal are still eligible to be selected for a future meal.
