Vision 2010

San José State University will be a prominent student-centered campus.  By creating a vibrant educational institution focused on academic rigor, social responsibility and mutual respect, San José State University will be a university of choice – a desirable place for study and work.  The University will be known for the value it places on the integration of liberal and professional education and theoretical and applied knowledge.  The University will also be known for providing a welcoming, inclusive environment and exemplary student support services from application to graduation.  Through the high quality of its graduates and the scholarship, research and service of its faculty and staff, San José State University will be viewed as a crucial resource for Silicon Valley and an important contributor to the region, the state and the world.

Planning committees (that include some of your colleagues) are already hard at work on six goals that fall into three overarching themes:

 

Theme #1 – Enhancing Academic Quality

1.0       Curriculum Reinvigoration & Learning Assessment

2.0       Enrollment Management

3.0       Investment in Faculty

 

Theme #2 – ENRICHING THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE

4.0       Community and Connections

 

Theme #3 – IMPROVING THE CAMPUS WORK ENVIRONMENT & INFRASTRUCTURE

5.0       Our People & Work Environment

6.0       Infrastructure

 

For Vision 2010 to be a success, we all have to support it.  Coming up with ways to increase student involvement is a first step in the right direction. Please come and share your ideas and techniques.
