Support in driving student and faculty awareness.

As an Adobe Creative Campus, you will get access to exclusive branded marketing materials for you to use in your internal promotion of Adobe access. Customizable posters, web banners, and email templates — created by the Adobe design team — make it easy to spread the word on campus, and for everyone to start learning and creating. Students in eligible regions are invited to join the Adobe Student Ambassador network, a select group of students supporting their peers in Adobe Creative Campus institutions.

Career readiness with essential skills for your students.

The Adobe Creative Skills series offers self-paced courses on essential skills, like how to deliver stunning presentations and how to create with generative AI tools. Students complete a 1-2 hour course, with exercises using Adobe tools, and can earn an official Adobe badge for each skill. These Credly badges can be shared on LinkedIn and in resumes to help students stand out to potential employers. Successful institutions have assigned these courses to students in coursework, and also outside of standard curricula to prepare students with career-ready skills.
