Florida A&M University students, faculty and staff have full access to Adobe Creative Cloud as the University has been named an Adobe Creative Campus.

The collaboration kicked off last fall. FAMU is the second Historically Black College and University (HBCU), after Winston Salem University, to be named an Adobe Creative Campus. FAMU is the second State University System campus, after the University of South Florida, to receive the designation. 

“Adobe and Florida A&M University are committed to providing students of all majors with the tools that are foundational to building their creative skill sets and ultimately, becoming digitally literate,” said Sebastian Distefano, director of Strategic Development for Adobe. “Greater access to Adobe Creative Cloud enables FAMU to expand its innovative teaching practices and seamlessly nurture creative problem solving among students to ensure that they are prepared both inside and outside of the classroom.”

As a member of the Adobe Creative Campus program, FAMU will have access to:

  • Adobe Creative Campus branding to identify as an Adobe partner committed to digital literacy.
  • Peer-to-peer collaboration with other members at Adobe Creative Campus collaboration events.
  • Support for driving student adoption in the classroom.
  • Thought leadership opportunities within the global higher education community.
