We serve students guided by the values of integrity, community, social justice, transformation and innovation — values which are at the heart of the San Francisco State ethos and reflective of our unique place and history. We hope to create that sense of “home away from home” and serve as a place where students can seek assistance or find inspiration when they don’t know where else to go.
