Faculty Pilot Program 

In Fall 2021, 15 faculty from the schools of Journalism and Media Studies and Art and Design participated in a pilot program to implement at least one Creative Cloud tool in their coursework. The purpose of this pilot was to increase Creative Cloud application adoption and champion digital literacy by introducing new applications to students in the classroom. The Spring 2022 cohort included faculty members across all colleges and disciplines.
