With opportunity comes responsibility. Whether enabling voices, assisting behavior change, speaking truth, or facilitating collaboration, our curriculum exercises design for good at each level.
Design for Good
A Campus Compact LINK Grant funded our project in the senior class with
Scott’s Run Community Park and Recreation, Inc.to make a first step toward their
community vision. It led to the design of an exhibit in a new history museum that
extended into the town with a history caching trail (like geo caching) and project
templates for ten other community development projects.
we worked with the truck driving community to try to create behavior change that
could address the profession with the shortest life span.
When elections come around, we often target our own student demographic to alert
them to why their vote matters and where to find candidate stances in order to
vote informed. This was at the junior level.
In the sophomore, junior
and senior level we have also worked for dozens of nonprofits, helping to create
brands and messages that promote positive change.

Social design requires a process of listening and discovering the values and feelings of the community involved. We worked with principles outlined in Design for Social Change, and from behavior and social psychologists.
