UNM and Adobe: Supporting a Creative Campus
Digital Fluency for a New Era
This summer’s launch of UNM’s transformative new initiative will make the full suite of creative software within the state-of-the-art Adobe Creative Cloud available to the university community. Training will help instructors build assignments drawing on this software in courses throughout the university, systematically supporting innovation in GenEd courses, online offerings, and every degree program. UNM students will emerge with software skills crucial to success in all kinds of careers, from cultural production and the fine arts to business innovation and from the non-profit sector to government service in the 21st century. Graduating Lobos will be positioned for success and creative innovation in a whole new way.
The University of New Mexico
It's different here. This is a place where each of us defines all of us, and we are regularly delighted by the unexpected, on purpose. Diversity of heritage, thought, culture, and expression is part of the UNM DNA, and a reason for the continuous celebration of difference and distinction. In part, this diversity stems from the university's unique geographic and cultural siting, and is a heritage that is built and shared with pride by our faculty, staff, and students. We have the light, landscapes, diversity, technology, stories, and cultures to drive a new era of innovation for New Mexico and beyond. With the Creative Campus initiative, we are building on UNM and New Mexico traditions to provide new tools and resources for creativity and scholarship. What will you create today?
Land of Enchantment
New Mexico has long been home to artists of all kinds, creatives, dreamers, healers, scientists and inventors. Multiple traditions of art and storytelling weave their way through landscape and memory and fuse with emerging technologies and scientific breakthroughs to create the culture, creative works, innovation, and possibilities for a diverse future. It is a legacy that originates with the land, the light, and the diverse peoples that make this the Land of Enchantment. From artistic and cultural creativity to technical innovations, the lasting impacts of New Mexico’s contributions are impossible to completely enumerate. These ingredients that make New Mexico unique are also inspiring a new generation of leaders, creators, innovators, artists, dancers, musicians, writers, scientists, and scholars.
