Equitable AI Alliance

Welcome to the Equitable AI Alliance (EAIA), a groundbreaking consortium dedicated to advancing affordable and accessible artificial intelligence (AI) in higher education. Our mission is to empower colleges and universities by fostering strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts to reduce costs, democratize access, and explore equitable funding models.

Why Collaborate?

Colleges and universities face a common challenge: how to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of AI technologies while ensuring equitable access for all students. As individual institutions, we lack the bargaining power to negotiate effectively with tech giants who dominate the AI market. By coming together as a consortium, we amplify our collective voice and influence.

Our Vision

At EAIA, we envision a future where AI solutions are within reach for every student, regardless of their background or financial means. Our vision includes:

  • Affordability: Negotiating fair pricing models with AI vendors to secure substantial discounts for educational institutions.
  • Accessibility: Prioritizing solutions that enhance accessibility, usability, and inclusivity.
  • Collaboration: Facilitating cross-institutional collaboration to share best practices, resources, and expertise.

SDSU’s Leadership

San Diego State University (SDSU) takes the lead in establishing the Equitable AI Alliance. As a trailblazer in AI research and education, SDSU recognizes the urgency of this topic. We actively engage with universities across the state and country to drive meaningful change.
