College of Applied Sciences and Arts
Social work led to a long and productive career in child welfare. My career culminated in heading up a project that raised $14 million, and built the county a multi-service shelter that provided temporary care for abused and neglected children. Social work also led to a path of community arts activism and leadership.

The college’s four schools and seven departments provide students with a theoretical base developed and tested through research, knowledge that can be applied in diverse systems, processes that incorporate human understanding and cooperation, and supervised practice in a variety of career-related settings.
We provide the skills and experiences that empower graduates to be exemplary members of a diverse and global community. The college is committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate programs and improving the quality of life for present and future generations.
We are proud of recent accomplishments our commitment to excellence has enabled:
- An unprecedented 98.31 percent of SJSU nursing school graduates who took the NCLEX-RN Licensure Exam in the first quarter of 2012 passed on their first attempt.
- A new virtual research center, The Center for Information Research and Innovation, was launched to benefit a global audience.
- Pulitzer Prize winner and Assistant Professor Kim Komenich’s photography project, "Revolution Revisited," has been in great demand across the country.
I am grateful to loyal supporters who have helped enable our successes. I encourage your involvement and investment in the future of our college and our students. This is a great time to make a commitment and invest in what promises to be a dynamic and exciting tomorrow for our college and San José State University. In addition to helping our students, you will be adding your vote of confidence for SJSU since your gift will be made in time to count toward Acceleration: The Campaign for San José State. Please make your gift to the College of Applied Arts and Sciences today!
