The Summer of Social Innovation

For the first time, MFA Design for Social Innovation and Impact! Design for Social Change are partnering to create the Summer of Social Innovation, a six- week program of day and evening classes for students and professionals. We’ll offer deep dives into specific experience based-projects, as well as core skills and tools.

This will be the most comprehensive summer program in Social Innovation ever, with graduate faculty from MFA DSI. If you’re a professional looking to bring more purposeful creative capacity to your organization, and to yourself, or if you’re a student looking to add the latest skills and knowledge to find a job that matters, find out more. Summer for Social Innovation courses will take place on an individual basis between June 22 – August 15, 2014.
