California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE)
The CABE of Pepperdine is a chapter composed of students, alumni, staff, faculty, and community members that want to contribute to a discussion about multilingualism, multiculturalism, and educational equity for the communities we serve across the Los Angeles County and beyond. We are Chapter 3 in Region 3 of CABE Statewide and anyone can join our chapter as long as they have paid their membership dues to the CABE headquarters. We strive to showcase events and activities that help augment topics of interest to the membership. The chapter elects officers to help build the leadership of GSEP students and alumni, but to also direct events that the chapter members request. As a chapter-based at GSEP, we meet both the missions of GSEP and CABE.

CABE Teachership Award
The CABE Teachership Program is an endowment fund established by CABE to award $2,000 scholarships to college or university students pursuing a bilingual teaching credential. Each CABE chapter, region representative, or individual nominator (must be a current CABE member) has the opportunity to nominate individuals for a teachership award. Nominee applications are reviewed by the regional representative(s) of the CABE Board. The region representatives form a committee to review all nominees from their region, and then they select up to two winners to be the region's teachership recipients. Teachership awards are presented during the annual CABE conference.
Pepperdine CABE sends nominations to CABE Headquarters at the end of November. Contact Dr. Garcia Ramos at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310.568.2306 if you seek to be nominated or need additional information.
