RESEARCH AND SPECIAL LEARNING FACILITIES
The major collections include ethnological specimens representing cultures of Native Americans, Africa, and Oceania. Small but valuable samples come from the material cultures of Southeast Asia. The museum also has audio-visual collections.
The museum provides the materials for student research, classroom lectures, and exhibitions, and thus supports not only the curriculum of the Department of Anthropology but also ethnic studies, art and art history, American history, high school education, museum studies, etc.
The museum has the Hohenthal Gallery and schedules temporary exhibitions focusing on anthropological themes.
The office is at SCI 380A, telephone (415) 338-1642.
The ALI also serves as a training institute for selected graduate students in the English Department's Master of Arts in English: Concentration in English as a Foreign/Second Language. Those graduate students become instructors in the ALI under the supervision of the full-time, permanent ALI faculty. The Director of the ALI has a faculty appointment in the English Department.
For further information about ALI programs, contact the ALI, HUM 101, 338-1438; e-mail: email@example.com.
The collection maintained by the Map Library includes: the university's Wall Map Collection, a regional flat map collection with world coverage, the AMS Series for Southeast Asia and a diverse collection of maps of California and the San Francisco Bay Region.
The Map Library also functions as an Official USGS Map Depository for the Western States Region. The Map Library houses a collection of nearly three thousand of the latest USGS Topographic Quadrangles for California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Alaska. These collections are open to the public during the regular business hours of the Map Library, located in HSS 289.
The center does this by connecting youth, university students, and professional journalists in efforts to reach common goals. In addition to annual summer journalism workshops for Bay Area high school students, school visits, and high school fairs, the center also coordinates a Writing and Photography Coach and Mentor program, in which a broad network of professional journalists work with the department's students on a weekly basis. The center coordinates a job fair and a number of other career services for SFSU's journalism students and works closely with professsional journalism organizations to conduct research and advocacy regarding the news media's coverage of ethnic communities in the United States.
The center's major goals include:
The center has been funded entirely by private grants, primarily with grants from The Freedom Forum, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. The development of the center comes at a critical stage in U.S. history. As Americans enter the twenty-first century, immigration, demographic, and lifestyle trends and social, political, and economic pressures have combined to make diversity an overriding concern for the news media in everything from the integration of the staffs of newsrooms to the integration of the content of news pages and broadcasts. The center hopes to help the news media fulfill its important responsibilities as gatekeepers for information, ideas, and voices that help shape public opinion and policy.
Courses presently available include those in Greek language (GRE 250, 251, 365, and 470); Greek literature courses (WCL 425, Kazantzakis; WCL 445, Modern Greek Literature; and WCL 465, Modern Greek Poetry); and courses in Greek history (HIST 326, The Byzantine Empire; and HIST 349, Greece and the Balkans).
The center also plans and coordinates cultural programs and activities designed to promote understanding of modern and contemporary Greece. In connection with the center, an endowed chair in Modern Greek Studies has been established, The Nikos Kazantzakis Chair, to provide support for curricular development and cultural programming.
For information about the Center for Modern Greek Studies, please contact Martha Klironomos, Director, HUM 577 (338-1892) or HUM 377 (338-2068); e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The laboratories offer full-time course work in oceanography, including marine biology, marine geology, and other marine sciences for majors in either the biological or physical sciences whose objectives include further graduate study, teaching the sciences, or research in the marine sciences. Since enrollment is limited, interested students should make early application.
Because of structural damage sustained in the October 17, 1989 earthquake, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories is temporarily operating at the Monterey County Center, 893 Blanco Circle, Salinas, California 93901.
For further information or application forms, please contact either the chair of the Biology Department or the chair of the Geosciences Department at San Francisco State University or the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, P.O. Box 223, Moss Landing, CA 95039. San Francisco State University students at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories must continue to follow university enrollment regulations and use San Francisco State University Marine Science course numbers.
The Center for Environmental Studies (CES) was founded in 1978 to serve as a multidisciplinary instructional and research facility for the study of the natural and human environment of the San Francisco Bay and the central California coast. CES provides a unique opportunity for faculty and students of diverse disciplines to work together towards reaching practical solutions to regional environmental issues. CES faculty and students conduct a variety of research programs from estuarine ecology to molecular biology. Support is provided from federal and state agencies and local foundations.
The Bay Conference Center (BCC) opened in 1987. Overlooking San Francisco Bay and the surrounding hills, it contains four meeting rooms, including a main room with seating for 140 people. University groups, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private industry utilize the Bay Conference Center for meetings, educational programs, and conferences.
Several university departments offer courses at the center each semester, including the summer term. Courses are designed to use the facilities of the center and feature field programs in marine and estuarine science, focusing on wetlands; planktonic and benthic organisms; and chemistry, geochemistry, and microbiology of estuaries and coastal waters. Courses are offered at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and opportunities exist for graduate research projects. Students should check the Class Schedule or call the center for information on course offerings.
The CES also sponsors a student intern program where students work with, and are funded by, private industry.
For information on CES or BCC, contact the Director, Romberg Tiburon Centers, P.O. Box 855, Tiburon, CA 94920.
For information about courses, scheduling programs and accommodations, please write to Director, Sierra Nevada Field Campus, College of Science and Engineering, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA 94132 or Sierra Nevada Field Campus, Star Route, Sattley, CA 96124..
Advanced students participate in mounting exhibits from the Sutro Collection--pottery, masks, jewelry, mummies, model boats, statuettes and other artifacts of daily life.
Visiting scholars, Bay Area students, and faculty use the collection for research and study.
