The new Siebel Center for Design is one component of a larger cross-campus, multidisciplinary effort to harness the potential of design thinking and design learning in our teaching, research and engagement. Through this effort, we will channel our students’ outstanding talents to develop expertise, passion and creativity toward issues and lives of consequence. Students from across campus and all fields of study will explore ideas and master skills through action—immersing, designing, making, doing.

The Facility

It will provide program space and will serve as the central station learning across disciplines, realities and cultures. The Siebel Center for Design will embody our institutional commitment to world-class education and discovery with societal purpose and relevance, as we engage the world—to act, to lead, to change.
