Beginning in the fall, DExC will build on the success of Bowdoin’s iPad Initiative by equipping all students with a 13-inch MacBook Pro powered by M1, an iPad mini, and an Apple Pencil, along with access to software used across the range of courses at the College.

Cato spoke about lessons during the pandemic, creating digital equity across the student body, and the advantages students and faculty have already experienced by being on the same technological page.
