Over time, the City, campus and community representatives evolved into a steering
committee, which in spring 2005 met to discuss project selection, assessment, funding,
and other organizational matters. The mission, name, and guiding principles of
CommUniverCity San José were approved. Momentum continued to build, with more
courses and faculty coming on board.
Concurrently, the top executives of the university and the city were searching for
ways to continue and expand their successful collaboration on the completion of the joint
city/university Martin Luther King, Jr., Library. Because neither the city nor the
university had sufficient funds to expand and modernize their main libraries, then SJSU
President Bob Caret and San José Mayor Susan Hammer brought the two together to
build a shared facility, combining the collections and staffing of both the public and
university libraries and building an award-winning new facility, completed in 2003. The
successive university and city administrations agreed that the collaboration should
continue and formed the “Beyond MLK” partnership. Don Kassing and Carmen Sigler,
