Winston-Salem State University is among the top 10 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the United States. Founded in 1892, the institution has a long history of fostering the creative thinking, analytical problem-solving, and ingenuity needed for its students to transform themselves and the world. Its leaders know how digital literacy is a key skill that students need to succeed in a global marketplace.
“Many of our students come from rural North Carolina, where they may not have high-speed internet, and many are the first in their families to attend college,” says Wanda White, Director of the Center for Innovative and Transformative Instruction (CITI) at Winston-Salem State University. “As the first HBCU to become an Adobe Creative Campus, we’re giving students tools they may not have access to—closing the digital gap and making them more competitive as they enter the workforce.”
