San Francisco State has partnered with the US Department of Energy to create the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC). The mission of IAC is to transfer new, efficient, environmentally sound technologies to industry. The program provides in-depth, on-site energy, waste management and productivity assessments for small and medium-sized manufacturers, followed by recommendations for specific dollar savings. These assessments conducted by faculty and students of IAC schools are designed to identify energy, waste, and productivity improvements as assessment recommendations (measures) throughout the plant, e.g., production-related services, HVAC and housekeeping. During the 2 to 6 month period following audit report submission to the client plant, the IAC conducts a survey of the client to determine which measures have been implemented. Within 60 days of the assessment, data is provided to the program database. This provides a reasonably accurate and on-going measure of the effectiveness of the program. The IAC services are provided at no charge to manufacturers.
The Institute for Civic and Community Engagement at SF State has partnered with the National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to create "a semester-long internship at the Golden Gate National Parks that encourages student interns to expand their learning and knowledge outside of the classroom while earning a stipend and academic credit. Student interns support the parks through various capacities such as youth and community engagement, habitat restoration, business management, law enforcement, historical interpretation, and more."
