Sneak Peek: Meet the New DI Faculty Fellows
We launched the first cohort of the Design Innovation Faculty Fellows for the 2022/23 Academic year. This group of faculty members have each proposed collaborative innovation projects to tackle during their fellowship. In addition, they meet regularly as a cohort group to share and discuss their progress on their ideas. This allows each person to gain feedback and insight from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, but also creates more opportunities for them to collaborate together to meet their shared/individual goals.
