Oral History Project

Your Story...Our History

The SJSU experience is one of passion, perseverance and stellar achievement. Every Spartan has a story, a story of triumph and unwavering commitment to being a change agent and a servant at heart. The Alumni Association wants to give you an opportunity to share your unique connection to San José State. This oral history project provides alumni the chance to tell their Spartan story in their own words. After the collection is complete, these unique stories will be compiled into a book that celebrates our alma mater and our illustrious history.

This opportunity is possible thanks a partnership between the Alumni Association and Publishing Concepts, Inc., (PCI). In addition to collecting stories, PCI will be assisting with collecting updated biographic information from alumni to ensure we have the best information available to stay connected with Spartans across the nation and beyond.

How to Share Your Story

Alumni will be receiving a postcard and email from PCI with more information on how to share their story. Stories will be collected via a phone call with a trained member of the PCI team. If you did not receive a postcard or email, you may call in your response via this telephone number: 800-735-5993
