What makes an Adobe Creative Campus unique?

Institutions across the country have made a commitment to digital literacy as part of their strategic goals. They offer Adobe Creative Cloud to their students, transforming their curricula to teach creative and persuasive digital communication skills across disciplines.

They actively collaborate with other institutions that are working toward similar student outcomes to share content and best practices. The Adobe Creative Campus program recognizes, facilitates, and supports these schools as they drive innovation and serve as flagships in higher education.
