The Nashman Center for Civic Engagement & Public Service in collaboration with the Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship presents the Designing Solutions for Social Challenges on Campus workshop.

This experiential and interactive workshop exposes students to the tools, tactics, and frameworks used by innovators, entrepreneurs, and designers to empathize with populations they seek to serve, define problem sets, and come up with innovative solutions.

Tools gained at this workshop will benefit those with a passion for social change, inclusion and diversity, and those at the early stages of exploring their own innovations, ideas, and social enterprises. No prior experience with design thinking is necessary to attend. 

Topic

In this session, we will discuss and design solutions to help to foster diversity and inclusion on campus.

Background

Social and civic innovators and entrepreneurs around the world are tackling some of the most complex and challenging social problems of our time. These innovators use the design thinking and human-centered design methods to provide impactful solutions in the US and across the globe. This workshop will dive into design thinking as a way to help students frame problems and create solutions to social and environmental issues.
