Welcome to the Affordable Learning community at San Francisco State University, a collaborative effort between Academic Technology, Disability Programs Resource Center (DPRC), J. Paul Leonard Library, and the SF State Bookstore.
We know every dollar counts and can make a significant impact in the access to education for our students, as well as faculty scholarship, research and creative activities. We are here to help familiarize our campus community with the wider California State University (CSU) Affordable Learning Initiative, and encourage faculty across campus to participate in the SF State Affordable Learning Initiative. We provide academic resources and cultivate a learning culture that benefits all members of our campus community.
