The Financial Markets Lab will facilitate both small and large-scale student projects that are central to many courses across a wide array of disciplines both in the College of Business and elsewhere in the University. Access to real-time data enables faculty to tailor their course offerings more directly to practical career needs.

Equipped with 12 Bloomberg Terminals, a stock market ticker display, and the latest classroom technology. With generous financial support and gifts provided by Stephen & Marjorie Cushman, the Financial Markets Lab was inaugurated on September 21, 2012.

The Latinx Resource Center supports students of Latin American descent throughout their journey at SDSU to succeed and thrive academically, socially, and holistically. We are rooted in Latinx culture, with commitments to intersectionality, equity, and social and racial justice. 

We cultivate a culturally affirming, inclusive, and welcoming space where Latinx students can show up authentically, be heard in the fullness of their voices, and be seen for the complexity of their diverse experiences.

Supplemental Instruction targets historically difficult courses and offers free sessions to all students on a voluntary basis. Sessions are facilitated by students who were previously successful in the course, known as SI Leaders. These sessions are collaborative and integrate course content and study skills with information gathered from attending all of the class lectures to help students engage in active learning. Active learning in SI Sessions may include memory games, journaling, or diagramming on the board. Please view this video to get a better idea of SI at SDSU.

The SDSU Writing Center promotes student success with writing across the university.

The Center works with undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines to develop and extend their knowledge and performance of academic literacies through coaching from tutors who engage them in conversations about their writing and broaden their understanding of audience, genre, language, and context.

The Center also works with faculty to promote success in writing instruction and to support the teaching of writing across the university. The Center conducts research into writing, which informs our work with tutoring as well as our understanding of the teaching of writing on campus.
