The phenomenon called digital divide was the focus of this paper. Diversity, disability, and geographical digital divide were relevant to this collaborative project. An extensive review of the literature was conducted for the completion of this project. The evidence for the digital divide in terms of race, level of education, and gender in the United States is presented. Digital divide as it affects individuals with disabilities was delineated. The geographical digital divide experienced especially by people on the continent of Africa was clearly expounded. The progress made in each of these areas was identified and well articulated. The paper concluded that this digital divide has raised both national and international concerns needing global collaborations among institutions of higher learning, national governments, and financial institutions in order to close the gap. Narrowing if not closing the gap would enable many people on the globe to be well informed to make prudent contributions to the development and improvement of global knowledge and economy. The attainment of this crucial goal is also germane to the advancement of global higher education to an equitable level.
