Affordable Learning Events and Opportunities

Posted on Monday, March 20, 2017

SF State Faculty and the AIM Initiative have helped save our students over $2.5 millionin the last three years. Join the movement of affordable learning!

Call for Proposals

Do you have an idea that can help cut the cost of instructional materials for SF State students? The Chancellor’s Office has awarded our campus funding to expand the impact of the Affordable Instructional Materials Initiative. Funding will go to faculty and departments that target specific courses or programs that currently use high cost instructional materials or have historically not used free or low-cost materials. Each SF State faculty member may submit one proposal for funding to support efforts to reduce the cost of learning to students. Multiple faculty may submit program- or department-level proposals as a group.

Submit an AIM Project Proposal (Faculty Awards from $250 - $2,500 depending on projected impact)
