Does tech revolution change education’s foundational goals? – President Hirshman’s latest blog post

“The changes in information technology that dominate our contemporary lives are revolutionary, and our education goals and programs must evolve.  Yet, even as we embrace new educational approaches, we reaffirm the classical liberal arts education that allows us and our students to understand the implications of these changes and how to respond so we can address our society’s challenges. This is the great opportunity that presents itself at SDSU and throughout higher education.” Be sure to read more at President Hirshman’s blog!

Lessons Learned at the Family Table-The President’s latest blog post

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Golda Meir and Cesar Chavez were as present in my childhood as if they were sitting in our living room.  When the UFW boycotted, there were no grapes in our house.  My mother argued vehemently for a women’s right to choose long before widespread adoption of this view, and racial and ethnic disparities in health care, wealth, education, and incarceration rates were a constant focus of her concern. Unlike many, her approach was not intellectual or philosophical.  It was about action.”- President Hirshman

Learn more about the lessons President Hirshman learned from his mother and how they help him lead today in his latest blog post.
