Internet2 Community Anchor Program
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) works with community anchor institutions (K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, health care facilities, museums, and other cultural and historic organizations) to further their educational missions.
Learn how the Missouri Research and Education Network's Immersive Learning Lab encourages students to pursue career opportunities in the field after graduation and better prepares them for college-level courses.
The Toward Gigabit Libraries Toolkit is designed to help public and tribal librarians learn about their current broadband infrastructure and internal information technology (IT) environment.
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) works with regional and local research and education networks across the country to connect the full range of community anchor institutions to advanced broadband capabilities. Community anchor institutions include K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, health care institutions, museums, and other cultural and performing arts organizations.
