Current SJSU students

Transition Programming

In 2019, the Promise began to expand into a program within SOAR that focuses on helping incoming ESUHSD students transition to SJSU, build connections, and navigate the University.

Our Vision is to collaborate with the campus community on interactive, intentional programming  to foster academic, personal, and professional  development, and a college going mindset, in ESUHSD students.  To do this, we have three objectives:

1 - Help students become part of larger campus community
2 - Serve as a support system for ESUHSD students and their families
3 - Decrease % of academic probation and disqualification in cohort
