We’re happy to share another TEDx talk, this time from TEDxIndianapolis, featuring Sami Nerenberg, Director of Operations for Design for America (DfA). Founded by Professor Elizabeth Gerber, DfA is a program of the Segal Design Institute at Northwestern University.
Imagine interdisciplinary student teams and community members using design to create local, social impact. What about teaching human-centered design to young adults and collaborating community partners through extra-curricular, university-based, student-led design studios that tackle national challenges in education, health, economy and the environment? DfA illustrates how its game-changing approaches in higher education are developing innovative leaders ready to deliver social impact.
