The US State Department facilitated five partnerships between US and Afghan universities to modernize journalism education in Afghanistan. San Jose State University in California partnered with Herat and Balkh Universities in Afghanistan. SJSU also led the effort, organizing three international academies for the other US and Afghan schools involved. This short piece looks back on what those two partnerships have accomplished.
Thanks to a 2013 gift of $8.7 million by Jack and Emma Anderson, the original printers of the San Jose State campus newspaper The Spartan Daily, the Journalism School is planning a major and dynamic technology upgrade to insure future students will have the latest new technology to do high quality multimedia, digital productions and research in social media. Embracing the highest standards for creative, ethical and responsible communications for media productions, this program invites global partners to explore new and exciting learning opportunities for the 21st century.

Dr. Matt Cabot, associate professor in San Jose State's School of Journalism and Mass Communications, is leading his fourth consecutive summer study abroad program in Europe. This 6-unit, four-week course is designed to help prepare students to live and work in an increasingly “globalized” world. Visits to some of Europe’s top strategic communication firms, class lectures, and variety of cultural activities, will introduce students to the kind of “global mindset” necessary to think, act, and lead globally.
Next summer (2013) I will be leading a four-week San Jose State study abroad program to Europe to study Global Leadership. The first three weeks will be in Paris; the last week will be in Florence. In between we will do a day trip to Brussels to visit the European Parliament.
