Dr. Tate Hurvitz teaches the English portion in several interdisciplinary learning communities, both
at the developmental and transfer levels, in Grossmont College’s interdisciplinary
learning communities program, The Freshman Academy. These links have included collaborations
with mathematics, science, communication, child development, art, and nursing. This
program, which he also co-coordinates, is designed to help students succeed by creating
a learning environment in which students develop their capacity to identify and apply
academic skills across disciplines. He is proud to serve on the state-wide California
Learning Communities Consortium (CLCC) leadership counsel, helping to plan and coordinate
professional development opportunities. He is also a fellow at the San Diego Center
for Ethics in Science and Technology, participating on its strategic planning committee
and directing its writing group which contributes opinion/editorial pieces about current
science and technology issues for local news outlets.
