Brandman University partnered with county education offices and school districts from across the state to host education-focused career events like the one in San Diego that is featured in my story this week (video above). The Brandman campuses in Antelope Valley, Irvine, Modesto, Ontario, Roseville, Santa Maria, Visalia, Walnut Creek and Yuba City held career fairs on Saturday where hundreds of Brandman students, alumni and job seekers from the community turned out. The Palm Desert campus hosted a similar career expo on Thursday evening, and the Fairfield campus is hosting its event this Saturday.
The Brandman University School of Education is prepared to help California as the state braces for a shortage of teachers. The biggest demand is for substitute teachers. Dr. Christine Zeppos, Dean, discusses the issues facing California and how Brandman is poised to make an impact.
