Undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty, and administrators across campus who are interested in using design tools and methods to build their capacity as creative problem solvers are welcome to participate in our various programs. These programs differ from courses in that they are not for credit, but like our courses, engage participants in active learning. Through these experiences, participants are challenged to reframe how they work, approach problems, and collaborate by developing their design and innovation mindsets and skills.
