Beyond the Classroom

Student Leadership Coalition:

Student engagement and leadership are essential functions of SJSU PHR department.  We have recently established Student Leadership Coalition that brings together leaders and representatives from our student groups within or associated with our department.  In addition to group-specific student-led activities and events, Student Leadership Coalition plans and organizes a variety of opportunities for our PHR students and alumni to participate and be engaged.  These student-centered opportunities are designed to promote a sense of identity, belonging, and connection within our SJSU PHR community.  These range from social, professional development, and career-focused opportunities for students and alumni to get together and connect, to mentorship, advising, and supporting each other.  Career Exploration Event, Story-Sharing Panel and Community-Building Session, and Class of Spring 2020 Spotlight via social media are among recent activities that reach out to and engage our students and alumni.  Currently, PHR Student Leadership Coalition is comprized of:
