About the Digital Wolf Pack Initiative

The University has learned a great deal about new teaching, testing and assessment and student support as our campus has navigated the challenges of the pandemic. This has been a shared experience by everyone in our community. One of the major lessons as we emerge from this period has been that digital literacy and digital accessibility are at the forefront of the future success of our students — not only on their path to graduation, but in becoming the leaders we know they can be in a highly competitive and ever-evolving careers marketplace.

We need to do a better job of providing digital equity and digital literacy. The Digital Wolf Pack Initiative provides an excellent step forward in bridging the digital divide facing many of our students, while also providing us an opportunity to amplify digital learning resources that are already available to all members of our student body. The new initiative will augment digital literacy and enhance student success by providing curriculum and experiences that will benefit our students as they expand their digital skillsets, making them much more marketable as they seek out their new careers.

This initiative represents a new educational modality so that every major and every program at our institution can institute a greater emphasis on digital literacy and fluency. The digital world touches everything in the real world. We believe this is only the beginning of our University offering greater access to digital tools that will help our students throughout their time as scholars on our campus as well as professionals in the marketplace while also strengthening our academic curriculum in its scope and impact. Whether students are freshmen or already advancing through their academic careers at the University, there are resources, tools and instruction available on our campus to help.
