“I’ve been very fortunate to have tremendous colleagues and relationships with state officials to help guide policy around solving the opioid epidemic.”
Dr. Sharon Walsh, University of Kentucky

Helping the world breathe easier. And cleaner.

Dr. John Volckens builds solutions to measure air pollution and improve global health.

“Apple technology helps us miniaturize our innovations, making them user-friendly and affordable for everyone.”

Dr. John Volckens(he/him)Director, Center for Energy Development and HealthProfessor, Mechanical EngineeringColorado State University

MacBook Pro. All the power Dr. Volckens needs to analyze massive air quality datasets and render stunning visualizations of his findings on interactive dashboards. All at the same time.

iPhone. Dr. Volckens and his team develop custom iOS apps that serve as the user interface for his air sensors on iPhone. The apps collect hundreds of measurements, like temperature, humidity and air quality, from anywhere in the world in real time.

”My vision is to help everyone everywhere know what’s in the air they breathe. Apple technology makes that vision a reality.”
Dr. John Volckens, Colorado State University

Forging a new, sustainable future for farming.

Brad Bergsma discovers innovative agricultural solutions that advance the global food industry.

“From controlling equipment to field management — the Apple ecosystem is at the heart of everything we do.”

Brad Bergsma(he/him)Instructor, Researcher and Chief Information OfficerNorthwest Kansas Technical College

iPad Pro. Bergsma uses apps on iPad Pro like Climate FieldView to capture, monitor and measure all of his agriculture research data — like water irrigation and crop nutrition — from seeding to harvest.

iPhone. From the greenhouse to the field, Bergsma uses iPhone wherever he goes. The convenience and flexibility allow him to check the weather, capture images and measure soil moisture on the fly.

Pushing the boundaries of creative expression.

Dr. Youngmoo Kim builds music technology that’s shaping the future of live performance and entertainment.

“I seek a world that places no limits or barriers on human creativity.”

Dr. Youngmoo Kim(he/him)Director, ExCITe CenterProfessor, Electrical and Computer EngineeringDrexel University

MacBook Pro. Mac easily handles pro music and visualization apps — like Logic Pro and MATLAB — to push the boundaries of Dr. Kim’s machine listening research using instruments and robots he builds himself.

iPad Pro. Dr. Kim develops iPadOS apps that bring people together to collaborate and feel connected. His Virtual‑Chorister app captures individual recordings and performances from musicians around the world to create virtual music ensembles.


Inspiration can lead to a lifetime of purpose.

Making the switch and reducing costs with Apple.

Self-proclaimed “PC-guy” Bill Adams crunched the numbers and saw a great return on investment with iPad and Mac at the University of Kentucky.

“From labour, to fleet cycle management, to deployment, to the way the whole ecosystem works together, Apple saves you money in the long run.”

Bill Adams(he/him)Field Services Associate DirectorUniversity of Kentucky

MacBook Pro. From crunching numbers to visualization, Mac performance powers Bill’s analysis. Split View elegantly displays data in Excel alongside the University of Kentucky’s technology performance dashboard.

“Most people only see the purchase price, but they don’t consider the total cost of ownership. Apple devices cut our IT labour costs in half.”
Bill Adams, University of Kentucky

Fostering diversity and representation through art.

Ajuan Mance uses Apple technology to create artwork that breaks down stereotypes and amplifies inclusion for all.

“iPad has made access to digital art and animation a reality for creators and artists to play, explore and find their voice.”

Ajuan Mance(they/she)Mills College, Dean of Digital Learning and Professor of African American LiteratureCalifornia College of the Arts, Adjunct Professor, Illustration Program and Comics MFA

iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Apple technology powers Mance’s digital art canvas. iPad’s versatility makes it perfect for illustrating, presenting and teaching — while Apple Pencil’s precision and natural feel enable Mance to seamlessly instruct how to draw and paint inspirational characters with the Adobe Fresco app.

“All people have beauty, value and power. My art, and my students’ art, is a way of saying ‘I see you.’”
Ajuan Mance, California College of the Arts

Impacting society, one innovation at a time.

Dr. Ichiro Iimura is providing new opportunities for social science students to leave a positive mark on the world.

“My goal is to build career readiness for my students by empowering them with cutting-edge tools and knowledge that help them create solutions to make a difference.”

Dr. Ichiro Iimura(he/him)Professor, Faculty of Administrative StudiesChair, Division of InformaticsPrefectural University of Kumamoto

iPad Pro. Dr. Iimura and his students use iPad, Apple Pencil and Adobe Illustrator to sketch out and storyboard ideas for an accessibility app that helps teachers communicate with non‑verbal students.

MacBook Pro. Xcode and Swift on Mac with HealthKit empower them to build a solution — an iOS app and a watchOS app that work together to capture and record students’ real-time heart rates and physical reactions during activities.

iPhone and Apple Watch. Video footage and heart rate graphs on iPhone and Apple Watch* enable teachers to instantly read a student’s reaction, better understand how they’re feeling and adjust teaching methods.

Shifting human behaviour to save the planet.

Dr. Sathya Gopalakrishnan inspires students to lead environmental change for a sustainable future.

“iPad has transformed the way I lead my classes. It gives me the freedom to engage with my students in a way I could not before.”
