Meeting the Needs of Students for the Workplace of the Future

College of Education and Health Sciences Assistant Dean and Director of the Graduate School of Education Justin Heard and Program Coordinator of Educational Leadership and Career Pathways Coordinator Louise Santiago were awarded a $200,000 California Department of Education Career Pathways Grant to prepare educators to engage and support K-12 students for the 21st century workplace and improve student transition into postsecondary education, training, and employment.

The GSOE will investigate and align its credential and master’s programs towards these goals. The grant is the result of a collaboration with the Vallejo City Unified School District.
