STARKVILLE, Mississippi—Mississippi State students are getting a new advantage this year thanks to a new partnership between the university and Adobe aimed at optimizing the college experience and improving their career readiness.

MSU is the first university in Magnolia State to become an Adobe Creative Campus, part of a select group of colleges and universities that are actively advancing digital literacy skills through curriculum to give students an advantage in the modern and competitive workplace. In addition to making all industry-leading Adobe Creative Cloud apps available to students on desktop and mobile devices at a reduced cost, MSU collaborates with other Adobe Creative Campuses to share ideas and innovations that help ensure student success. Faculty and staff will also benefit from the partnership with expanded access to Adobe creative software applications at a reduced cost, to further help students tell stories and explore their creativity.

The Adobe Creative Campus designation recognizes innovative universities that promote digital literacy, access, and equity for students. University leaders predict that improved access to cutting-edge applications for graphic design, photography, videography, illustration and more will help students, faculty and staff develop skills and enhance academic and extracurricular projects .

Assets include 26 apps from the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Adobe XD, Premiere Pro, and Adobe Express, among others. Additional cloud storage, allowing for easy file sharing, is another benefit for MSU students and employees, who can also access Adobe Stock with over 500,000 assets, such as images, graphics, videos, 3D objects and high quality models. Adobe Sign, Adobe’s electronic signature solution, can also be used by MSU employees.

“MSU has listened to our student and employee communities who have requested a campus-wide Creative Cloud solution. These apps are used in classrooms across a variety of academic disciplines, and the university is committed to equipping our students and employees with the best tools to succeed,” said Steve Parrott, MSU Chief Information Officer.
