Design & Innovation

About

The Design & Innovation Community aims to cultivate students’ passions and pursuits around technology, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Here, you can turn your ambitious ideas into a bold new reality in an inspiring environment where residents mentor each other and bond over the principles of design. The Design and Innovation Community ignites creativity in its residents and provides them with the tools, programs, and networks so they can bring their ideas to life.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in this community as we examine how imagination and creativity can change the world.

The Design and Innovation LLC is located in Sproul Hall.
