Creating new educational pathways for students in the Digital Age

Universities Take the Initiative

Inspiring faculty at universities are at the center of the Technology Pathways Initiative (TPI), creating new interdisciplinary degree programs to prepare more students for an increasingly digital world. These programs are scalable and replicable, by design, to maximize the impact of TPI across campus and across the nation.
