New Addition to the School of Education Community

I am pleased to announce that Jacalyn Griffen, Ed.D, has accepted the position of Teacher Education Program Director: Merced Campus. Jacalyn earned her Ed.D. from the University of the Pacific, where she also earned her Master of Arts in Educational Administration and Leadership. She most recently held a variety of positions at the University of the Pacific.


Jacalyn wrote in her application:  

I am compelled by my faith to create an inclusive learning community that provides the opportunity to work towards common goals. I often tell my students that entering the teaching profession requires not only strength of character but more importantly strength of faith. I modeled this by honoring the tenants of my Christian faith to create a classroom community were all can learn on common ground.


We are honored to have Jacalyn join our School of Education community!
