FACULTY IN THE MEDIA
With the presidential election nearing, in the past couple weeks, two of our faculty members in our department had articles published in major news outlets.  Prof. Teresa Puente, had two articles published on TIME magazine’s site – one on latinas and the presidential election, and a second on Donald Trump’s proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  And Prof. Todd Henneman had an article publish on CNN’s site on Billy Bush’s participation in the famed Trump video.

FACULTY PROFILE: TERESA PUENTE
Despite being told growing up that she was “too smart to be Mexican” or that she “speaks English so well,” Teresa Puente has overcome the struggles Latinos face here in the United States. A native of Chicago, Puente hopes to share her extensive knowledge and wisdom to future journalists at California State University, Long Beach.  Click here to read more about it.
