Digital Equity Leadership Program (DELP)

What Is Digital Equity?

When everyone has access to the information technology required for full engagement in our society, democracy, and economy, this is digital equity. Access to critical services, jobs, lifelong learning, and civic and cultural participation all depend on digital equity.

About DELP

In order to directly address the lack of internet access, connectivity, adoption, and equity at the university and nearby anchor communities, the Digital Equity Leadership Program (DELP) was created. NCCU will devise creative solutions to assist locals in the anchor communities who might not possess the digital literacy abilities required to look for, land, and keep a job as well as carry out other everyday chores.

Training Opportunities

Training in digital literacy is the main component of this program. Online and in-person classroom instruction will both be available for training. The training that we provide through this program with our partners is listed below, along with a brief description of each course.

Low-income households receive a discount on internet services through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which is run by the Federal Communications Commission. This prevents them from having to choose between buying broadband or other requirements.
