Do You Know a Student Perfect for the Studio?

We’re looking for students from every discipline to be pioneers in the Design Thinking Studio for Social Innovation pilot semester, students who want to make an impact, who want to build something exciting a creative cohort of peers with similar goals, who will thrive in this unique environment.

If know such a student, please direct them to this website, and talk to them about how the Studio might help them achieve their goals. Help the student think through participation in the Studio as you would help plan for a semester abroad.

Students will earn a variety of credits during the semester, especially COR credits. Because students will earn their COR capstone through the program, juniors and seniors are preferred. Any of the faculty leaders would be happy to speak with you and the student about the Studio opportunities, logistics of the program, and any concerns related to curriculum and transcript credits.
