The University Advancement team works to build sustained support for Silicon Valley's public university through individual fundraising, corporate and foundation partnerships, and alumni and community engagement. Long before the university became the "most transformative university" it was the founding campus of the California State University system, a Normal School that trained teachers who set out to educate the pioneering people of a young California. San José State's people continue to adapt to meet the needs of the region and beyond—using what powers them to make the world a better place. Philanthropy makes that possible.
Whether it has been two days or 30 years since you last walked along San José State's paseos, we'd like to welcome you back. There are lots of ways you can stay connected to your alma mater and to other alumni. You can start by learning more about the Alumni Association and updating your contact information. Once a Spartan, always a Spartan.
