The Heart of Creation
for the campus community to
Question. Discuss. Dream. Invent. Innovate. Collaborate.

The Siebel Center for Design provides a new means of channeling developing expertise, passion, and creativity toward issues and lives of consequence.

You explore ideas and master skills through action—immersing, designing, making, doing. The culture is centered on multi- and trans-disciplinary education and student-led problem discovery and problem solving. Collaboration and learning is facilitated across disciplines, realities, and cultures, through diverse experiences bold in problem framing, rich in design thinking, and uninhibited in risk taking.

Pop-Up Workshops

Ready to host a Pop-Up Workshop? This should provide experimental learning centered around design thinking for students, facilitating their knowledge of what's possible as a maker.
