Welcome to the 2021 Celebration of Research!

I am delighted to announce the return of the San José State University’s annual Celebration of Research event.  The Celebration of Research 2021 will be held virtually 1:30 pm -3:30 pm on April 29.  Mark your calendar!

We are planning a vibrant virtual event with interactive features and presentations honoring our faculty and student researchers and highlighting their outstanding Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA) that is taking place at SJSU.  We will honor our Early Career Investigator Award winners from both 2020 and 2021, celebrate our winning SJSU Student RSCA Competition finalists, and enjoy the creative performances of students in the College of Humanities and the Arts.  

The winners of the SJSU Grad Slam will also be announced live at the event. Grad Slam is an exciting competition in which graduate students deliver compelling three-minute presentations of their research, scholarship or creative activity. Each presentation is a test of the student’s ability to engage a wide audience as they communicate the importance of their
project. After playing videos of the five finalists, we invite the Celebration of Research  audience to vote in real-time to select the People’s Choice award.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us on April 29, 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm!

I look forward to celebrating with you!
