DESIGNING FOR CHANGE is Manhattanville's introduction to design thinking.
Over the course of the semester, students define, ideate, and prototype solutions to a problem they identify on the Manhattanville campus. In addition to learning and participating in the process of design thinking, students practice the design thinking mindsets of empathy, collaboration, optimism, embracing failure, creative confidence, and a bias toward action. Students explore examples of the use of design thinking as an approach to find creative and innovative solutions to "wicked" problems facing our society and world. Students also explore the history of social justice at Manhattanville College and their own capacity and identity for being an agent for change.
On December 14, 2021, Designing for Change students, professors, mentors, and supporters gathered to see these final presentations.
AND THE WINNERS ARE...
