A brief description of the institution’s formal community partnership to advance sustainability:

Established in 2005, CommUniverCity San Jose is a partnership of the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace communities, San Jose State University (SJSU) and the City of San Jose. SJSU concentrates service-learning classes in these neighborhoods in cooperation with the Neighborhood Advisory Council and the City. The broad goal of CommUniverCity is to build community in the neighborhoods and engage students in civic life while addressing the community development priorities identified by neighborhood residents. This is done by matching SJSU faculty and students who take their classes up with projects in the community that neighborhood leaders identify as important and that align with City objectives.
