A Deal to Address Digital Inequity
Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed
When Brian Sandoval became president of the University of Nevada, Reno, in September 2020, he pledged to make access to technology a priority for the institution and to do a better job of promoting digital equity and digital literacy.
Now, thanks to a partnership with Apple, incoming first-year students will receive an iPad Air, Bluetooth keyboard, and digital pen when they come to campus this August. Sandoval hopes to use the relationship with Apple as a recruiting tool for future students and an example of how the institution can better prepare graduates for a competitive job market.
