SJSU’s four-phased approach to the adaptation of research, scholarship, and creative activities is congruent with the State of California Pandemic Roadmap. The plan optimizes the health and safety of SJSU personnel and the community, the continuity of essential research and creative activities, and the restart of other RSCA projects as quickly as feasible within the public health and safety guidelines.
COVID-19 has presented us with many challenges, but it has and will continue to present new research funding opportunities. The Research Development team is here to help you apply for these COVID-19 related funding opportunities – as well as any other extramural funding opportunity.
The Office of Research, Center for Faculty Development, SJSU Research Foundation, and SJSU Tower Foundation collaborate to offer a variety of opportunities, programs, and resources designed to assist students and faculty in their research, scholarship and creative activity interests and initiatives.
If you plan on pursuing research with human participants either through direct interaction (interviews, surveys, experimental interventions, etc.) or through the use of private records about individuals, approval need to be obtained by the IRB before the research begins. The IRB is a committee responsible for reviewing research proposals submitted by SJSU students, faculty, and staff that involve the use of human subjects.
