A Carolina initiative provides powerful digital software tools to all students.

A Carolina initiative provides powerful digital software tools to all students.

In 2016, the University announced that it had paired with Adobe Systems to provide all students and faculty with free access to Adobe Creative Cloud software — which includes design mainstays such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver. An individual student license normally costs upwards of $240 a year.

More important, as part of a larger UNC College of Arts & Sciences goal to ensure that future Tar Heels graduate with a high degree of digital literacy, a required English course now includes at least one major digital project. With the right tools, students now can thrive completing this project while building an impressive digital portfolio throughout their Carolina career.
