DLSU Becomes the First Canva-Powered Campus in the Philippines

Canva, the world’s only all-in-one visual communication platform, and De La Salle University (DLSU), one of the Philippines’ leading universities, are teaming up to bring Canva for Campus to over 25,000 DLSU students and faculty members in an effort to empower them to create and communicate visually. 

According to Canva’s Visual Economy Report, visual communication is fast becoming the most impactful form of communication in the workplace. With this, there has never been a more important time for campuses in the Philippines to embrace the power of digital and design literacy and enable students to unlock critical skills that will allow them to be more competitive in today’s evolving and fast-paced job market.

DLSU Canva-powered campus

“Great communication is a pillar of effective education. As the world evolves, so must the tools that our schools and universities use to educate and communicate with students. We are excited to see how Canva will empower DLSU students, not only in the classrooms but beyond, as they bring their visual communication skills to their future workplaces,” says Yani Hornilla-Donato, country manager of Canva Philippines. “We’re also equally excited to bring Canva to the hands of DLSU’s faculty members to empower them to create a more engaging, interactive class powered by visual communication.”

Canva for Campus brings the power of Canva’s entire visual communication platform to colleges and universities through a new subscription. With it, the entire campus body gets access to premium features, from thousands of high-quality educational templates for lesson plans, presentations, and infographics and more to team management and collaboration features designed with schools and universities in mind.

Enhancing the Campus Life with Canva 

DLSU, with its forward-thinking approach to education, recognizes that its campuses should embrace a more streamlined way of collaborating and creating classroom materials. In line with the institute’s affinity for innovation, it is now the Philippines’ first Canva-powered Campus—an opportunity for more effective collaborations and communication among students, teachers, and the campus administration. 

“Canva has always been a popular tool used not just by our students but also our faculty and employees. Investing in it aligns with the university’s goal of ’Enhancing student experience’ by giving them full access to the tools they need for learning. With Canva having AI-powered tools and apps, our students will be able to leverage technology and have the edge in being a 21st-century learner,” shares Michael V. Manguerra, ECE, Director of DLSU’s Academic Support for Instructional Services and Technology.

Apart from students, Canva for Campus also enables educators to customize content to make every lecture, class, and project engaging. It also allows university departments to streamline workflows, share knowledge, and collaborate with each other.

Canva is now a widely used visual communication platform in schools and universities, with over 60 million students and teachers using it globally to achieve their goals. To sign up or learn more about Canva for Campus, check out www.canva.com/for-campus/.
