After spending her academic career outside her native California, Mary A. Papazian, president of San Jose State University, describes her arrival there as “coming home.” She talks about committing to be a long-term leader at the university — beset by challenges in recent years — and about what she’s doing to help San Jose State reach its potential.

A transcript of the interview is coming soon.
