Supporting Our Students’ Basic Needs

During my time here at SJSU, one of the things that I have been most impressed with is the willingness of our students, faculty and staff to help each other. I share that same spirit, and one of my key goals as Interim President is to ensure that we are serving our students in the best ways possible, particularly their basic needs, and especially their need for housing security.

“Share Your Spartan Heart” and Support Our Students

I am pleased today to kick off a timely and related campaign, one that begins today and continues until Dec. 10. Known as “Share Your Spartan Heart,” the campaign is intended to raise awareness among students that SJSU Cares services are available, and give faculty, staff and students a way to support these efforts. The campaign offers all members of our campus community the opportunity to donate to SJSU Cares and thus help those students in need with food and emergency housing support.
