For the past seven years, the Student Technology Fund (STF) has transformed the landscape of technology equity and access at Cal.
STF has provided
1) Free software negociated at scale for all students, including:
ZoomPro, Adobe Suite, Microsoft Office, LinkedIn Learning, MATLab, and STATA, and,
2) Grant funding for more than 400 projects including:
Course capture, the Library's Laptop Checkout Program, Student Technology Equity Program (STEP) and other COVID relief efforts, the Student Tech Services Helpdesk, the Open Computing Facility (OCF) and other campus labs, makerspaces, and more.
Without STF, programs like these would lack critical funding that enables technology equity and, thus, equal access to the promise of the Cal experience.
