Digital Equity Week

During the week of November 29 to December 3, 2021, UCSC is hosting the first ever digital equity week. During this week resources will be shared through social media to help students, staff, and faculty better achieve digital equity. We encourage you to utilize the resources and share them with others.

What is Digital Equity

Digital Equity is creating equal access technology that enables individuals to participate in society. The five components of digital equity include:

  • Affordable, robust broadband Internet service.
  • Internet-enabled devices that meet the needs of the user.
  • Access to digital literacy training. This means that individuals know how to use and navigate digital software and hardware in a way that supports their needs and use.
  • Quality technical support. If an individual runs into a technical issue, they should have access to help and support to resolve the issue.
  • Applications and online content designed to enable and encourage self-sufficiency, participation and collaboration.
