The Institute for People and Performance (IPP), housed in San Jose State University’s Lucas College and Graduate School of Business aspires to be a center of excellence aimed at advancing knowledge of human capital management, through a combination of training, research, and engagement with industry and professional organizations.

To achieve its purpose, the IPPA seeks to create a community in which students, scholars, and industry professionals can engage by focusing on the following components:

Educating students, alumni and members of the local community to enhance their employability and success in the workplace, by offering human resource training and workshops.

Delivering training and support to Silicon Valley companies, specifically in the area of human capital management and people analytics; and more broadly in the area of management development.

Partnering with organizations and companies to create a learning community from academia and industry, with shared interests in human capital management, including research elements that will inform the practice, policy, and learning outcomes.
