The Research and Innovation Division works with the entire campus to seek internal and external support for student and faculty research, scholarship and creative activity (RSCA), and institutional projects that support the educational and service mission of the university. Collaboration is sought across disciplines, departments, and community partners in preparing proposals to federal, state, and private agencies.
The Office of Research offers the Campus Community a wide variety of services related to their RSCA activities. Office of Research staff assist with proposal development, proposal submission to external funding agencies, post-award support, and help to assure that RSCA and sponsored programs are conducted in accordance with the highest ethical and regulatory standards. Other activities includes processing some faculty grant awards programs and coordination of campus-wide student research initiatives and competitions.
An Office of Innovation will be established to support innovation and entrepreneurship across the SJSU campus.
