What is a T-shaped professional?

T-shaped individuals have both breadth in how to collaborate and innovate across disciplines and depth in specific areas of expertise. 

What makes T-shaped individuals so effective at what they do is that they are immensely empathetic, having a keen sense of other's perspectives. A T-shaped professional can see through others’ eyes, walk in their shoes, listen actively, and create solutions that build on their ideas.

These qualities are essential in higher education where faculty and students continuously seek new ways to use technology to advance learning, collaborate on research, access information, and share knowledge.
