    San Jose State University is taking no chances with free-thinking freshmen and transfer students, and has mandated microaggression and diversity training with a minimum $250 price tag in its Frosh Orientation. The training is a one-day orientation on campus and focuses on videos depicting skits of microaggressions performed by student actors and encompasses areas such as culture, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. No portion of the fee is optional and students must participate in every aspect of the day’s programming to be eligible to register for fall classes.

    In a move believed to be the first by a college campus in the nation, San Jose State University President Don Kassing has suspended all campus blood drives because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration bars any man who has had sex with another man from donating blood. "The FDA's lifetime blood donor deferral affecting gay men violates our non-discrimination policy," said Kassing in an e-mail sent to faculty, staff and students. The suspension, which is effective immediately, applies to blood drives arranged by employees representing the university as well as blood drives organized by student groups. The FDA's ban...

    Almost two-thirds of California residents believe President George W. Bush is untruthful and only 23 percent approve of his job performance, according to a new poll released today from San Jose State University. In contrast to the president, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's approval rating is at a near-record high of 62 percent, according to the poll, conducted by the Survey and Policy Research Institute at SJSU. Schwarzenegger is winning approval from liberal and moderate Californians while still maintaining a 64 percent approval rating among conservatives, according to the survey results. While California's presidential primary is 10 months away, the poll results...

    Take that, Stanford. Two San Jose State students have been asked by the White House to represent budding Silicon Valley engineering talent and rub shoulders with President Bush on Friday when he visits Cisco Systems. College of Engineering Dean Belle Wei said she got a call Tuesday from a valley ``Republican heavyweight,'' asking for names. Wei said she thinks SJSU got the call because ``we have normal students, not Stanford students, privileged students.'' After all, Bush is in town to tout his plan for keeping American industry competitive in the computer age. Wei has tapped two of her top students,...

    A recent poll shows the born-again "moderate" Republican governor has gained back some popularity, especially in the Bay Area, and is now in a dead heat with Democratic competitors. "Our survey demonstrates that Schwarzenegger's retreat from the more conservative rhetoric and agenda he brandished during the latter part of 2005 has paid off among middle-of-the road voters," said Melinda Jackson, director of the Survey and Policy Research Institute at San Jose State University. The governor's job performance rating among voters in a Democrat-leaning state has climbed from 36 percent positive and 53 percent negative in September, to 40 percent positive...
  • Governor's moves to political center appeal to voters, poll finds

    The poll, released Thursday from the Survey and Policy Research Institute at San Jose State University, is the first sign that Schwarzenegger's recent moves to reposition himself in the political center are paying off. It found that Schwarzenegger's standing has improved most among Democrats and independent voters. Those groups comprise two-thirds of California's registered voters but generally opposed the governor's agenda for the November special election. 40% of voters statewide said they approve of the job Schwarzenegger is doing, with 51 percent saying they disapprove. That's slightly better than the 36 percent approval rating he received in the university's September...

    SJSU statue to be erected to mark athletes' Olympic black power salute It has been 36 years since sports and politics collided in one searing image during the 1968 Olympics: Sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos silently protesting racial injustice with a black power salute on the winners' stand in Mexico City. The two men returned to San Jose State University on Friday to break ground for a larger-than-life statue that will capture the monumental event for decades to come... The statue, which is the result of the efforts of the school's Associated Students organization, will be erected Oct....
