Cultivating a Culture of Creativity

The University of Arizona is proud to be an Adobe Creative Campus, a designation that honors us as a leading institution that recognizes the value of teaching digital literacy skills in higher education.

As the first Adobe Creative Campus in the West, our goal is to cultivate a campus-wide culture of creativity that embraces digital literacy and the creative process both inside and outside of the classroom. In addition to offering Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Stock to current students, faculty and staff at no cost, we are committed to integrating creative and digital literacy skills into all aspects of the Wildcat experience. Adobe & Arizona works with instructors across disciplines to transform curricula to teach creative digital communication skills, and partners with experts and organizations across campus to offer free and frequent online tutorials, live workshops and special events, which are open to all. 

Learn more about how to access all the great Adobe & Arizona offerings by visiting Get Adobe Creative Cloud and Request Adobe Stock. Browse featured apps and tutorials on our Apps & Tutorials page, and register for upcoming workshops or multimedia open training at Events.  

Adobe & Arizona is based out of Digital Learning, where we are passionate about student success and believe that the digital learning environment offers unique opportunities for interaction, engagement and access. To learn more, visit Digital Learning.
