The pandemic has exposed a broadband digital divide, particularly for rural students. EdTech: Focus on Higher Education recently interviewed Internet2 VP of Network Services, Rob Vietzke, to learn about strategies that higher education leaders should consider to help close the digital divide.

“Higher education brings mass to the table. They can think of themselves as a market-maker in these rural communities,” Vietzke says. “If a provider knows that the university has a five-year or 10-year commitment, they might be more inclined to build in places where they otherwise would not.”
