A program of the Design Initiative at Dartmouth
Design Corps matches teams of talented student innovators with Dartmouth offices and departments to tackle complex challenges facing those campus organizations. The student teams and partner organizations work together over two or three terms to conduct research and develop creative solutions.
Design Corps offers campus organizations and students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of human-centered design, and to practice collaborative change-making. Campus partners gain access to a group of dedicated student designers from a variety of academic backgrounds, and students have the opportunity to directly influence decisions that could enhance experiences of the Dartmouth community.
