SF State Faculty Save Students $5 million* with Affordable Instructional Materials!

Affordable Learning is a priority at SF State. Through Open Educational resources (OER) and/or Affordable Instructional Materials (AIM), faculty can make their courses more affordable and equitable.


Academic Technology, The Leonard Library, the DPRC, and the SFSU Bookstore support faculty in replacing costly textbooks with lower cost alternatives by using high-quality open educational resources (OER), library resources, digital or customized textbooks, and/or faculty-authored materials.  Every dollar counts for many students. If students cannot afford the assigned class materials, they may try to learn without them.

*Total potential savings based on the cost of materials and course enrollments 2014 - 2019.
