WSU Recognized as an Adobe Creative Campus
Weber State University became an Adobe Creative Campus in February of 2021. We are now part of a select group of colleges and universities that are driving the future of digital literacy within the global higher education community. This distinction recognizes top institutions that are dedicated to transforming education through creative digital empowerment. By increasing access to digital literacy, this partnership with Adobe allows Weber State to set a higher standard in academia and lead the future of education.
As an Adobe Creative Campus, WSU faculty, staff, and students have full access to Adobe Creative Cloud, a set of applications and services that gives users access to a collection of software for graphic design, video editing, web development, photography, and much more.
"As I begin to look ahead at potential jobs, I'm grateful for the digital fluency skills I have been able to learn in my undergrad. Many employers list skills and proficiencies with these programs as standard requirements for their workplaces. Even employers who don't require these skills will often still list them as bonus skills that can set you apart from other applicants in the job posting."
- Porter Lunceford, WSU creative writing student

"As a faculty member who specializes in rhetoric and writing studies, I love the Adobe applications because they give students a quicker path from novice to expert and because they provide our students audiences for their writing that were simply unavailable twenty years ago. Suddenly, writing at the university is public writing with real consequences, as it should have been all along."
- Jason Barrett-Fox, Assistant Professor of English
This means faculty can more easily advance creative and persuasive digital communication skills throughout their curricula to give students an edge in the competitive modern workplace. Our school will collaborate with other Adobe Creative Campuses, sharing ideas and innovations to expand digital literacy and help ensure student success.
Our students can now access Adobe Creative Cloud tools, so they can easily learn to create a myriad of multimedia projects that will give them a competitive edge when they start looking for jobs.
