Staffed by a classified staff person who will support implementation of the program, who will develop and facilitate the process for laptop rentals, program orientations, workshop development and delivery, computer training, and technological support in collaboration with student mentors dedicated to this program and supporting the Office of Student Equity.

• Close the digital divide for underserved students by improving their technical skills in the areas of computer literacy to improve course, student retention and college completion.
• Provide computers and broadband access to student populations that are least able to afford them.
• Students will have access to hardware and technical support to ensure their success with the program
The Digital Literacy Project (DLP): DLP is a new initiative focused on closing the digital-use divide for low-income and first generation students at City College of San Francisco. DLP understands the troubles of navigating the digital age which is why we focus on providing students with resources on accessing and using technology for academic success.
