Vice President's Message

The Administration and Finance Division welcomes you to the university! 

It’s been a fast four months since I have joined San Jose State University.  I have been amazed at the many efforts and teamwork I have seen.  I feel truly blessed to be part of this great community. 

This summer, our Facilities Development & Operations Service Group (FD&O) worked on over 150 projects, including the new Campus Village 2 (CV2), and Science 142 Upgrade. Next Generation Classroom updates (Boccardo Business Complex 32, 205 & 226), Sweeney Hall 100 modernization, and numerous painting projects around campus (Hammer Theatre looks great too!) kept the FD&O team very busy.

The Finance Service Group’s Budget Office has completed and published the University’s 2016/17 Budget Report. This Budget overview will be presented to the Academic Senate on October 10. 

This fall, we have major projects in process: The Dudley Moorehead Hall renovations (set to re-open in January), and CV2 (now open, occupied and amazing!).  Work is starting on the Student Recreation Aquatics Center (SRAC) including the removal of Royce and Hoover Halls (the bricks). You will see fencing going up prior to the demolition.  

We just completed a California State University (CSU) audit of our Emergency Management Operations. Thank you to the University Police Department for all their work on this.

We are happy to announce that the NEW San Jose State University Bookstore will be opening on October 31!  Thank you for your patience, the new space looks fantastic.

The service groups in our division are here to support and enhance the experience of students, faculty and staff. I take great pride in delivering the highest levels of customer service.  We are here to help you make this university and community asset an even better place!  

I invite you to explore the service groups in the Administration and Finance Division. Please do not hesitate to contact my office at or 408-924-1500 with any questions or concerns.
