Access, Creativity, Collaboration


Our vision is to redefine the Jewell experience by using technology that enables access, creativity and collaboration in a 21st century higher education community.

What does this mean for you as a Jewell student?

  • With a Jewell-provided iPad and reliable wireless access anywhere on campus, your learning will not be bound by the limits of a physical campus. And you get to keep your iPad upon graduation.
  • Be part of a community where learning is among, between and led by students. We challenge the traditional instruction-based approach.
  • You have 24/7 access to the Pryor Learning Commons, with collaboration studios, editing suites, 3D printers and more.
  • Take part in professional development through workshops, and receive one-on-one assistance through our eHub.
