As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, our SJSU Lurie College of Education is positioned to lead. Our faculty, staff, and students have done remarkable work during this past year.

We’ve strengthened our commitment to educational equity and racial justice by investing resources in bold emancipatory initiatives and tackling structural challenges within the college. We’ve amplified the impact of faculty-led research by strengthening our community partnerships and growing our media engagement. These achievements position Lurie College to lead our regional P-20 educational ecosystem and to be a model nationally of what it means to be a truly transformative college of education.
We’ve developed our new BA in Interdisciplinary Studies online degree completion program for individuals who have accrued some college credits with a flexible and engaging opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree.

ESAN creates an interdisciplinary network of current San José State University students interested in working with young children with alumni currently in the field. The group is intended to respond to the needs of students, with activities based on student interest. This hub of student activity may engage in a variety of professional development activities under the guidance of a faculty advisor. For example, students may be interested in learning more about professional practices across the field to inform their knowledge and interaction with young children. This group may also engage in career exploration, with alumni returning to share insights from their own professional paths.
The newly-established Rapid Education Prototyping (REP4) Alliance is a powerful network of regional and national education, industry, and technology leaders, led by the six founding higher education partners, including the SJSU Lurie College of Education / Institute for Emancipatory Education.
