The university recently entered into an agreement with Adobe that provides all faculty, staff and students on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses and at Michigan Medicine with access to Adobe Creative Cloud apps. The agreement advances an ITS initiative that is based on a desire to build partnerships that would benefit the entire university community.
Previously, U-M units, departments and even individuals purchased Adobe subscriptions and products based on an array of group or personal needs. The negotiated enterprise agreement with Adobe levels the playing field and allows everyone to have full access to tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, In-Design and Dreamweaver.
“I am very proud of the efforts of my ITS colleagues and grateful for the partnership of the campus community to make this happen in such a timely manner,” said Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology and chief information officer.
