Connie L. Lurie 

Connie Lurie's commitment to education has had a tremendous impact on both San Jose State University and the Bay Area as a whole.  Her dedication to the university and her philanthropic spirit exemplify the ideals of the California State University.

Connie Lurie graduated from San José State with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and psychology in 1964, admirably maintaining her connection to her alma mater to this day.  She helped establish San Jose State's Connect Motivate Educate Society, which provides support and mentorship to former foster youth pursuing a college education.  In 1998, she endowed the Lurie Author-in-Residence program at San Jose State, which attracts renowned national and international authors to serve as distinguished visiting artist/scholars for one or two semesters.  As a result of her philanthropic generosity, the San Jose State University Connie L. Lurie College of Education was named in her honor.
