San José State Portal

Portal Project

IT Services is working with a campus committee to identify and implement SJSU Portal technology that aligns with Vision 2017. The goal is to make it easier for SJSU students, faculty and staff to navigate teaching, learning, and administrative tasks.

Single Sign-On & Easier Navigation

Each SJSU system currently requires a separate login. The SJSU Portal will provide a single sign-on allowing access to relevant information and applications services appropriate to one’s role at SJSU. Additionally, navigation will be made easier through customized and personalized views within the portal environment.

Pilot Phase

The pilot phase of the SJSU Portal will provide single sign-on to applications such as PeopleSoft, Canvas, WebEx, Google apps and other SJSU applications along with targeted personalized messaging.

Ideally, the SJSU portal will increase student engagement, making it easier for students and faculty to communicate and collaborate, find instructional resources and streamline administrative tasks.
