Writing with a purpose
SFSU’s ASPIRE program has been developed to address the needs of high-need AANAPI and low-income students with the greatest need for support:
Pacific Islanders (PI)
Southeast Asians (SEA) and Filipina/o/x
Students who are low-income; potential first generation college students
Students at risk of educational failure

The ASPIRE program will focus on addressing disadvantaged individuals’ needs in the following areas: academic barriers (writing and composition), non-cognitive skills gap, learning disabilities and mental health challenges and financial pressures.
