As a significant part of its efforts to prepare students for living and working in a global world, San José State University entered into a long-term partnership with the world-renowned Salzburg Global Seminar in 2005 to participate in its International Study Program in Global Citizenship (ISP). SJSU is the major public institution of higher education in Silicon Valley, which is ground zero for many aspects of globalization, and one of our strategic priorities is to help people develop the global competencies to work with diverse sets of stakeholders and resolve the critical challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. The ISP is a Seminar program for faculty, administrators, staff, and students from US colleges and universities that offers them an opportunity to explore pressing issues from an international perspective during intensive week-long sessions in the heart of Austria.
Each year the SJSU Salzburg Program selects a group of faculty, staff, and administrators to serve as SJSU Salzburg Fellows and a group of students to serve as SJSU Salzburg Scholars. Both of the groups are sent to an ISP session each summer, either a faculty/admin session or a student session, following which they are expected to spend the subsequent academic year working together on a mix of individual and group projects to help globalize the University. They also have an opportunity to participate in a variety of professional and social Salzburg Program Activities, ranging from an annual reception at the President’s home and guest talks on campus to panels during SJSU’s International Week each semester and the San José-Salzburg Global Dialogue.
The Program is sponsored by SJSU’s College of International and Extended Studies, funded by scholarship programs and various administrative units on campus, and coordinated by a small Steering Group composed of SJSU Salzburg Fellows and SJSU Salzburg Scholars.
