Overview

Mission Statement 

The Student Technology Fund (STF) equitably and transparently stewards use of student fees in support of technology initiatives that advance undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students’ academic and co-curricular experiences at UC Berkeley. The STF supports efforts that span academic disciplines, champions initiatives that are both innovative and practical in nature, and it pays particular attention to ensuring that the needs of historically underserved students are equitably met. STF centers students' voices as agents of their own resources and includes a diverse representation from the community in its Committee and staff composition.

Our Work in Brief

The Student Technology Fund's committee and staff, respectively, make funding decisions and administer the Student Technology Fee.  Voted into place by students in 2014, the $51/semester fee harnesses students' collective buying power to negotiate software licenses at scale and channels funding to grant-based technology projects that enhance the student experience.
