AbstractThe Collaborative Media Center at SUNY Old Westbury expands on a successful proof-of-concept pilot funded by a 2013 tier one IITG. The Center’s mission is to support digital literacy and the use of emerging media tools in teaching, learning, and communicating at Old Westbury and in the community beyond. This mission is fulfilled by collaborating across disciplines and with community partners to support community-engaged and research-based student media projects. Digital projects are supported through the Center’s ongoing testing of open digital tools, the creation of online resources, and the offering of individualized online and face-to-face support. This model, designed to promote life-long digital literacy, provides a blend of online tutorials and individualized support until learners develop the confidence to master new technologies independently. Digital literacy is essential for job readiness and democratic civic engagement. Old Westbury, as the most diverse SUNY, is uniquely suited to host this digital divide initiative, an important area of focus across SUNY, as online learning is expanded.
