In the introductory chapter for this volume of cases in digital transformation, author Rebecca Blankenship considers the emerging role of institutions of higher education in providing innovative environments for teaching and learning. She provides a practical foundation for the emergent and evolving need among colleges and universities to embrace digital equity through progressive initiatives that provide diverse and modern learning environments reflective of the needs and expectations of the 21st century students they serve. The author frames her discussion within the contexts of increasing digital literacy among faculty, instituting a culture of innovation and change, as well as considering how initiatives such as the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University's Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) provide realistic solutions for the technology gap between the traditional brick-and-mortar university and the evolving needs of 21st century students and expectations of the increasingly connected and competitive global workforce.
