We have come of age ! With more than 80 years of history now — 17 of which have taken place in the Sacramento Region — and with our university tripling in size in the past 10 years , Jessup is now “ all grown up .” Since our founding in San Jose in 1939 , Jessup has been about equipping our students to make a difference in the world . Since moving our home campus to Rocklin in 2004 , Jessup has operated with the Best of Sacramento at our Rocklin campus , the Best of the Bay Area with our San Jose campus , and the Best of the Globe with our Online campus .
In the last 10 years , we have seen the addition of a full suite of Science programs , including our School of Nursing launching in the Fall of 2022 ; Arts programs , like our multi-award-winning theater productions ; and Technology programs , including our Master of Science in Computer Science in San Jose . All of these new disciplines have been added to our always-stellar Business , Education , Psychology , Bible and Leadership degrees . Every Jessup student graduates with a values-based educational experience that equips them to be exceptionally employable in our region . Jessup is making a contribution for good in our community every day .
The next 10 years will be even greater and better than ever before ! With a new soccer field coming this fall , with many of our sports reaching national prominence , Jessup is achieving our goals . In the next decade , we will continue to be highly ranked , broadly accessible and financially sustainable . We are the region ’ s “ free-market ” university and our graduates are writing an amazing story , one life at a time . The stories our graduates tell is also your story . You have been part of helping us grow , employing our graduates and leveraging our shared interests to make our region the best place to live , work and play in California . As you read this special edition , our prayer and hope is that you will see yourself and your future in this feature .
Thank you for all you do in our community and for your heartfelt connection to Jessup . Enjoy the journey !
With gratitude ,
John Jackson , Ph . D . President William Jessup University
