Adobe Partnership

Campus Creativity and Digital Literacy

The California State University system has partnered with Adobe to provide Creative Cloud Pro Edition to faculty, staff and students at all campuses. Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of 20+ desktop and mobile applications for photography, design, video, web, user experience, 3D, and AR/VR. It also includes services like collaboration across all of your devices, access to thousands of fonts, and Adobe Stock content. The Creative Cloud ecosystem provides a unique opportunity for students to develop digital literacies through multimedia assignments and projects in the classroom. These digital literacies can be developed across the curriculum and contribute to greater student success within and beyond the classroom and to career pathways in the modern workplace.

CSU Adobe Creative Campuses

Congratulations to these CSU campuses that have made digital literacy a part of their university’s strategic goals and have gone above and beyond to integrate Adobe creative solutions into student learning and development!

“Expanding my skillset with Adobe Creative Cloud throughout my years in college has opened up a variety of professional opportunities for me, such as being a Student Ambassador on campus and interning as a Solutions Consulting Intern at Adobe.
