About Braven

San José State University became Braven’s founding college partner in 2014. A group of associate deans and faculty at the university were eager to do even more to expand opportunity on their campus, particularly for students from low-income backgrounds, students of color, students who had transferred, and first-generation college students. Since then, we have partnered with the university to offer the Braven experience to 1,961 undergraduates. SJSU offers Braven’s Career Accelerator course as a 3-unit, credit-bearing course that meets once weekly in a hybrid modality.

This course prepares students for the increasingly competitive, globalized job marketplace. Through online and peer learning, interactive experiences, and reflection, students will build meaningful networks, discover their innate leadership, and cultivate the “hard” and “soft” skills and habits of mind needed to thrive in twenty-first-century workplaces. This course will require your commitment. Nothing good comes easy, but this course will be equally rewarding as it is challenging.

The Braven Accelerator is a 3 unit elective credit course that meets once a week in the afternoon or evening. Students must add UNVS 101 Leadership and Career Accelerator to their MySJSU.
