CEIS Alumna Recognized

Susana Oliu, a special education teacher and a College of Education and Integrative Studies alumna, was honored for a second time by The Society for Science & the Public (SSP) for her commitment to training underrepresented students in STEM education. SSP is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing scientific literacy, STEM education and scientific research. “My goal as a teacher is to continue to implement and support STEM research and scientific literacy in our high school,” said Oliu, who teaches high school students with mild to moderate disabilities in the Pasadena Unified School District. “I am hopeful that disparities in STEM careers will decline as our students continue to be exposed to scientific research.”
