IDESN 3370 Community Design Studio

Community Design Studio is a professional work-experience course in which students collaborate with non-profit organizations to produce vital, real-world projects. The course helps students develop essential skills - communicating ideas, understanding client relationships (meetings, presentations, budgets and schedules), collaborating with peers, and coordinating a project with its complex attributes from a design brief through to actual production. The mission of the course is to use design to strengthen the communities around us and, in the process, to strengthen ourselves as designers.
