External Research Partners

SJSU values its external research partners and research partnerships. They are critical to the success of our Research Enterprise and the quality of the education we offer our 33,000 students.  

We are happy to share our strengths – talented faculty, engaged students, a very diverse student body, centrally located campus – and collaborate on research projects over a myriad of topics. SJSU has 9 different colleges, and awards an average of 9,100 bachelor’s and master’s degrees across 134 areas of study. SJSU also hosts 30 affiliated Organized Research and Training Units (Centers and Institutes), established within the University to facilitate the conduct and dissemination of research, perform public services and provide special training.

Founded in 1857, SJSU is California’s oldest public university. Today, SJSU ranks fifth in enrollment within the 23-campus California State University, the largest university system in the United States, providing an affordable, high-quality university education to a largely local community (Santa Clara County residents, 40%; other California counties, 49%). SJSU has one of the nation’s most ethnically diverse student populations with a majority minority student population.

SJSU ranks 7th in Top Public Schools (2019 U.S. News & World Report) and 5th in the Social Mobility Rankings (2019). Money Magazine ranked SJSU as #1 Most Transformative College in the U.S. (2020). SJSU is federally designated as a minority-serving institution (MSI), an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI), and a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).
