Design for America | Michigan State University

What We Do
We identify issues in our community and look for ways to better the lives of those affected by the issue through designing a solution.

Why We Do It
We are college students looking for real world experience that will expand our thinking and give back to the people around us.

How We Do it
Each semester we choose a number of issues and divide our studio into small interdisciplinary teams to address each issue. We spend the semester connecting with the community and those influenced by the issue to narrow down our focus, work and design a sustainable solution.
