In an effort to support the SJSU Strategic Plan: Vision 2017 goals of “Spartan Pride” and “Helping and Caring,” the Division of Student Affairs and Spartan Shops are partnering on a new welcome program for fall 2012. The goal is to instill a sense of belonging and Spartan pride from the moment a student first comes to campus.
Student Affairs is planning three welcome stations from Aug. 20-30, Monday-Thursday. There will be resource tables and volunteers at each station to answer any questions students may have.
These tables will be staffed with faculty, staff and students, making this a campuswide effort. Volunteers will serve in two hour blocks, starting at either 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. with some evening shifts from 4-6:30 p.m. To volunteer, contact Anthony Bettencourt at (408) 924-6062.
Locations will be as follows:
#1. The corner of South Ninth and East San Fernando streets in front of the campus gate.
#2. In front of the Event Center.
#3. A location to be determined near King Library.
Spartan Shops has produced “Ask Me” buttons with the Spartan logo for all faculty and staff members to wear the first two weeks of the fall semester. Pins will be distributed through the vice president of each division. More pins can be obtained at no cost from the Spartan Shops offices in MacQuarrie Hall.
