The Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions (CMSI) has selected 19 Early Career Faculty Members to participate in its ELEVATE training program, and the College of Education’s own Marissa Vasquez-Urias was selected to participate.
As their three-year journey came to an end in May 2016, students who attended San Diego State University remotely from their home on the island of Palau were able to reap the benefits of their hard work as they earned their Bachelor’s Degrees.
Dr. Felisha Herrera Villarreal has been named as a 2016 American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE) Fellow.
AAHHE bestows this honor on "key leaders, scholars, teachers, and artists who have advocated, supported, and championed Latinos in higher education. The Faculty Fellowships have been developed to recognize individuals who, through their expertise, energy, productivity, and contributions, have improved the conditions of Latinos pursuing a college degree or a career in higher education.
