SCD is a campus resource for everyone - students, faculty, and all learners interested in developing the mindsets of HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN 

What is Human-Centered Design?

Human-centered design (HCD) is a problem-solving approach that uses design thinking methods and tools to identify the unmet needs of a population in order to collaboratively and iteratively develop solutions.

(Tim Brown, Harvard Business Review, 2008)

We DO design by integrating research and practice

Our research informs our content, and teaching our content feeds our research. This relationship allows information to travel both ways and is at the core of how we develop meaningful and relevant teaching materials for any discipline.
