The Office of Research, in conjunction with Science Education Faculty members, are proud to offer the Science Education Program! This program aims to inform SJSU endeavors by promoting student success and retention through evidence-based, high-impact practices. Through the Science Education Program, faculty members from any college can work with Science Education faculty members in developing and improving course curriculum, designing experiments, and meeting best-practices in STEM university teaching, among many other benefits!

At San Jose State, we are committed to providing research, scholarship and creative activity (RSCA) opportunities to both faculty and students. The outcomes of our RSCA engagements move disciplines forward, improve quality of life on local and global levels, provide experiences for students that support retention, build the reputation of our institution and bring in resources from outside agencies. To support this important priority on campus, we have created SJSU’s RSCA Plan: Faculty and Student Intellectual Engagement and Performance (PDF).
The goals and objectives set out in this strategic document build on the efforts we started with the 2014-16 Academic Affairs Working Plan RSCA and Professional Development Support priority group. The plan is informed by the priority group along with input from deans, RSCA-active faculty, the University Council of Chairs and Directors (UCCD) and university-wide town hall meetings.
