How Gregg is making a difference in the College of Education:

“During my almost 25 years at SDSU as a graduate student and as a professional, I have enjoyed mentoring so many talented and hard-working students. Working with Student Tech Assistants in my lab, I have had the opportunity to assist students with everything from homework to heartbreak. It’s been amazing to see the incredible things that my former students go on to achieve and they make me very proud. In fact, about eight of my former student assistants currently work on the SDSU campus!”
