Tyler M. Argüello (Social Work) has collaborated with national LGBTQ+ scholars, all of whom additionally have served several years on the Council on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression (CSOGIE) of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the accrediting body for social work programs. This new empirical publication — the first of its kind in social work — addresses a long-standing problem around accredited social work programs. This research project involved several Sac State MSW students and alumni. The publication is as follows: 

Kristen A. Prock, Daniel C. Cavanaugh, Cristy E. Cummings, Christopher Russo, Drejul Aersolon, Lucas R. Prieto and Tyler M. Argüello (2022) "Do we practice what we preach?: Exclusionary LGBTQ+ policy at religiously-affiliated institutions of higher education with CSWE-accredited social work programs," Social Work Education, DOI: 10.1080/02615479.2022.2149392

Diego Bonilla (Communication Studies) has a modular virtual reality project titled Uku Pacha that has completed a year of film festival participation. Uku Pacha won two awards for Best Virtual Reality Film, received two honorable mentions, and became an official selection in 16 more festivals in different countries. Bonilla’s modular filmmaking consists of authoring a computer program that will edit many variations of a film, in this case a virtual reality film, based on its story and viewers' preferences. To watch the VR film on a personal device, use headphones and open this link on the YouTube app. To watch the film on VR visors, use the same link on the visor’s YouTube app or look for Uku Pacha on Oculus TV. For detailed information visit, the project’s website.
