With the month of September quickly coming to a close, SJSU is finalizing its budget for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. I wanted to provide an update to my message from July, which discussed the California State University’s $299 million budget cut from the state and potential implications for our university, including how we will do our best to protect employees’ job stability.
(July 30) Over the past few months, our SJSU community has continued to persist through times of uncertainties and disruptions. I appreciate your resilience and adaptability and thank you for your continued support of our university and each other.
I remain committed to doing everything I can to protect everyone’s positions while ensuring the financial health and stability of our university. Having said that, the Governor recently signed the 2020-21 state budget which cut $299 million to the CSU. As a result, all CSU campuses, including San José State, will see a significant reduction in budget allocations.
