Digital Wolf Pack Initiative

Transforming the learning experience through digital technology and tools

Why did we start the Digital Wolf Pack Initiative?

The University of Nevada, Reno partnered with Apple to create the Digital Wolf Pack Initiative (DWPI), a program that provides a common learning platform and equal access to technology and digital tools for new, undergraduate degree-seeking students and faculty.

Our goal with this program is to augment digital literacy and increase student success by providing enhanced curriculum and experiences that expand your digital skillsets and provide a platform to personalize your learning experience. We hope the DWPI will enhance your ability to learn new technologies, expand your mind and give you the necessary tools to create the future of your making.
