Leadership at San Jose State University

President Papazian believes that university presidents—and indeed all leaders—are only as good as the people around them. In her position as president of San Jose State, she reminds herself of a simple phrase by educator and author Steven W. Anderson that sums up a vital element of her overall leadership approach: “Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant.” At SJSU, we aim to model this behavior and thus provide important examples for our students.
