Design for Social Impact

An immersive exploration of design thinking as a method for tackling social needs and issues. Social innovation seeks to impact transformational change in underserved, underrepresented, and disadvantaged local and international communities by addressing problems too complex to be solved by traditional methods. Students in this course will work in collaborative teams to employ the human-centered design process to discover and develop innovative solutions for social problems such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, and violence.
