JMS Receives Prestigious Provost’s Innovation for Excellence Award This year, San Diego State established the Provost’s Innovation for Excellence Award to honor departments and schools that have, through collaborative effort, implemented a new initiative that has generated momentum toward achieving one or more of the key goals outlined in our university's Strategic Plan, Building on Excellence.

The School of Journalism and Media Studies and director Dr. Bey-Ling Sha won a $20,000 award for launching a bilingual media writing initiative that has improved student continuation rates, supported the recruitment of diverse faculty, and attracted the support of new community partners.
