Transformation and Impact
Our Impact, Amplified
Investment in Community
CommUniverCity is a unique partnership between underserved communities in central San José, SJSU, and the City of San José, where SJSU students and faculty join local residents to build community through service-learning projects that address education, community health and improvements to the neighborhood.
Transforming Wildfire Research
SJSU’s Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center (WIRC) is the nation’s largest wildfire research center and the leading institution for wildfire research and management in California. Craig Clements, Director of the Fire Weather Research Laboratory, pioneered research utilizing special instruments to measure wind turbulence during a fire.
Restoring Marine Habitat
A team of researchers from SJSU’s Moss Landing Marine Labs School of Marine Science, Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, and California Sea Grant successfully restored native Olympia oysters in California through aquaculture, doubling the oyster population in Elkhorn Slough in just two years.
