I hope many of you had the opportunity to see Spartan success in action at one of our inspiring spring commencement ceremonies. We now have over 10,000 new alumni — with more than 7,500 graduates in spring 2022 and 2,500 in fall 2021 — proudly holding diplomas from San José State University.
I had the opportunity earlier this spring to offer welcome remarks at the CSU’s Grad Slam competition. As our College of Graduate Studies is the first graduate college in the CSU system, we were honored and delighted to host our Cal State colleagues and campus representatives. The event reminded me of all the amazing progress we have made with our graduate programs these past few years.
