Extended Academic Access for 2020-21 Emerson Grads
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, learning and creative output have suffered from stress and financial strain. Recent graduates (2020 and 2021 classes) should be allowed to retain free access to Microsoft office suite, Linkedin learning and Adobe creative cloud (as well as access to institutional research databases such as jstor.) For creators, these are invaluable tools that enable the creation of portfolios and facilitate a smooth transition from student life to career search. At least six months of extended use can make up for a stunted academic experience.
