WSSU is the first historically Black college and university (HBCU) to become an Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC) Campus.

Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) has partnered with Adobe to offer the full collection of Creative Cloud software to all students, creating the first Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC) Campus at a historically Black college or university (HBCU).

Through the partnership, WSSU students, faculty and staff with a registered university email address now have access to Adobe CC favorites such as Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Adobe XD CC, and Spark.

WSSU began offering Adobe CC as part of a digital literacy initiative in August but the implementation began months earlier with collaboration between the Office of Information Technology and the Office of the Provost. This fall, Adobe is being introduced in dozens of classes, helping to expose students to the technology.  

“Embedding digital literacy learning activities throughout the curriculum and using industry-leading programs will give our students a distinct career advantage,” said Eli Collins-Brown, director, Center for Innovative and Transformative Instruction at WSSU. “A cutting-edge software like Adobe Creative Cloud helps to develop our students and faculty into content creators, allowing them to express themselves in more innovative ways. This will give our students a huge competitive advantage when they graduate and embark on their career.”
