Center for Visual Literacies

The Center for Visual Literacies at SDSU focuses on two related goals: (1) improving student learning through visually integrated teaching practices, and (2) exploring the potential of visuals as data and for data analysis in qualitative inquiry. The need for applying methodologies that deal with non-text/non-verbal data is high, particularly at a time when cultural mediation is dominated by image-based communication and in an area like San Diego with a high population of English learners.

CRMSE: Center for Research in Mathematics & Science Education

The Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education (CRMSE) is dedicated to advancing mathematics and science education at local, state, and national levels. They are an interdisciplinary community of scholars at San Diego State University engaged in research, curriculum development and dissemination, publications, presentations, and leadership roles in the community.

Literacy Center

The SDSU Literacy Center is housed at the Dede Alpert Center for Community Engagement in City Heights. The Center provides leadership and comuunity-based, collaborative services for literacy achievement including a reading clinic, effective early intervention, literacy assessment and tutoring, professional development and more.

PCI: Pre-College Institute

Since 1983, the SDSU Pre-College Institute has setup partnerships between federally funded TRIO programs, public schools and academic departments/research units at the University. The Institute has integrated three existing federally funded programs (Talent Search, Upward Bound Classic, and Upward Bound STAR/Classic) to serve underrepresented students and their teachers in low-income neighborhoods.

Project LEARN

Project LEARN aims to find inquiry-oriented mathematics and science teachers and help them become even more effective. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation and Qualcomm, Inc. San Diego teachers participate in the SDSU Noyce Mathematics and Science Master-Teaching Fellowship Program, thanks to a unique collaboration between the public sector and the private sector, with $3 million awarded from the NSF and an additional $500,000 from Qualcomm.
