DEBER Initiative Opens Pathway to Diverse Teachers

Faculty from the Department of Dual Language and English Learner Education.

Supported by a $3.7 million Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the five-year initiative will create a pathway for about 100 students per year from Southwestern College, San Diego Mesa College and San Diego City College who will transfer into San Diego State University’s bilingual credential programs.
