About The CDVL

The Center for Digital and Visual Literacy (CDVL) is a resource for students, faculty and staff to cultivate digital skills, tools, and methodologies. Learning Assistants act as peer tutors to facilitate the exploration of current and emerging applications and approaches to digital concepts. Housed on the terrace level of McCain Library, the CDVL has two student work areas with iMac computers and a tutoring center for side-by-side support.

Mission Statement

The Center for Digital and Visual Literacy develops students to be honorable, creative and knowledgeable digital citizens.

Digital literacy includes behaviors and competencies that illustrate the effective use of software, applications and digital devices for the purpose of expression, engagement, collaboration, advocacy, and innovation. A digitally literate person understands the relationship between technology, life-long learning, personal privacy, and stewardship of information. Further, a digitally literate person uses these skills and the appropriate technology to communicate and collaborate with peers, colleagues, family, and the general public.
