In an effort to increase connections to the greater San Diego community, Dean Joseph F. Johnson and many other faculty and staff members within the College of Education have scheduled site visits to prominent locations of specialized education throughout the San Diego area.

The first fall semester visit took place at the Rady Children’s Hospital Autism Discovery Institute on September 10th. According to the administrators of the Institute, the facility was designed to be a one-stop shop where children could come from an early age and partake in programs all the way through adulthood. The Institute’s top-level autism education combined with the College of Education’s continued research on Autism Spectrum Disorder allows for both entities to work closely with each other in the future.

Faculty and administrators visited e3 Civic High School on October 29th for the College’s second site visit of the semester. The school was intentionally designed within San Diego’s state-of-the-art San Diego Public Library to maximize its relationship with the downtown community and to provide students with powerful learning experiences focused on preparing them for success in college, career and civic life.

With multiple site visits scheduled for the Spring term, the College of Education hopes to continue to form collaborative bonds within San Diego that can make a difference in the lives of the communities we serve. The goal of the visits is to benefit both students within the College as well as children and students at the sites. Faculty from the College also hope to utilize these sites as possible research locations for future studies and texts. The College looks forward to continuing to build relationships throughout the San Diego community.
