Campus Priorities and Initiatives

The priorities for San José State University are nearly as diverse as our own student population. They incorporate a variety of areas, including global education, diversity and inclusiveness, students’ basic needs, health and wellness, sustainability and the environment, and other important topics. While we touch on just a few key themes here, new sections will be rotated in frequently.
