Bryn Mawr’s Digital Competencies Program helps students forge a meaningful path from their first-year college orientation course through to their senior year career planning. The program was created in response to a Board of Directors task force directive to ensure students develop the digital competencies needed to succeed in and beyond college. In 2014, Bryn Mawr received a three-year, $800,000 grant from the Mellon foundation to create curricular and co-curricular opportunities for students to develop these competencies.
