SJSU’s RSCA Plan: 2014-2016 Faculty and Student Intellectual Engagement and Performance (PDF)

At San Jose State, we are committed to providing research, scholarship and creative activity (RSCA) opportunities to both faculty and students. The outcomes of our RSCA engagements move disciplines forward, improve quality of life on local and global levels, provide experiences for students that support retention, build the reputation of our institution and bring in resources from outside agencies. To support this important priority on campus, we have created SJSU’s RSCA Plan: Faculty and Student Intellectual Engagement and Performance (PDF).

The goals and objectives set out in this strategic document build on the efforts we started with the 2014-16 Academic Affairs Working Plan RSCA and Professional Development Support priority group. The plan is informed by the priority group along with input from deans, RSCA-active faculty, the University Council of Chairs and Directors (UCCD) and university-wide town hall meetings.
