The goal of the California State University Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP) is to increase the number of faculty with the qualifications, motivation, and skills needed to teach the diverse students of the CSU.
CDIP prepares promising doctoral students for CSU faculty positions by providing financial support, mentorship by CSU faculty and professional development and grant resources. It is the largest program of its kind in the U.S.
In an effort to reduce educational costs for students, provide access to high-quality instructional materials and alternative resources, and recognize faculty efforts in making instructional materials freely available; Sonoma State is partnering with the CSU system on two key initiatives: the Affordable Learning Solutions program and AB 798 Textbook Affordability Act. Collectively, these efforts are intended to promote student achievement for students at SSU. SSU has convened a Steering Group with representatives from Associated Students, Faculty, Disabled Student Services, Library, Center for Teaching and Educational Technology, Information Technology, and the SSU Bookstore.
