President Papazian: It is not only our students who help define why SJSU is a transformative institution. The fact is, everyone is touched in some way by their Spartan experience (students, parents and families, alumni, faculty, staff) and likely has their own way of describing what SJSU has meant to them. Being a transformative institution, I believe, begins with core values.
