Our Vision, Mission and Values


Guided by the teacher-scholar model, we will build a strong, inclusive SJSU faculty-led, student-focused platform of innovation, research, scholarship, and creative activity that translates intellectual capital into transformational impact in our communities.


We support the sustainable and inclusive growth of the SJSU research and innovation enterprise and help develop and strengthen a vibrant, inventive, responsible, and entrepreneurial campus culture to bring educational, economic, and social benefits to our local and global communities.


The Division of Research and Innovation will strive to uphold the following values in all our dealings with our stakeholders: Trust, Inclusion, Accountability, Empathy, Collaboration and Creativity.
