Innovation in Teaching, Research and Creative Activity

Teaching, research, scholarship, and creative activity are key elements for advancing student success and collaborative partnerships for addressing societal needs.

The university must adapt to ensure its educational offerings are current with technological advances, social trends, and innovation. The global pandemic brought challenges as well as opportunities for innovation.

We will extend what we have learned in response to the global pandemic, and will leverage new technology and partnerships to support faculty and staff, and meet the changing needs of our students. We will continue to expand opportunities to develop new programs that meet the needs of the region and our students. Investment in graduate education is paramount and requires a commitment beyond our current levels.

Sacramento State must also focus on research that includes applied, practical, and creative work, attracts external resources, and positively impacts the community, state, nation, and larger global community. An investment in research creates a strong foundation for teaching, learning, innovation, and economic development.
