“The diverse and innovative ways students in the communities we serve utilize technology both inside and outside of the classroom is impressive and paves the way for our future,” said Trish Niemann, Senior Director of Corporate Communications. “In an increasingly digital world, made more evident during the Coronavirus pandemic, we are excited to see how technology is helping students dream bigger, and we want to do our part to help make those dreams happen.”
