Kent State Research Review: Partners by Design
Kent State broke ground in April on the Design Innovation Hub, a $44.5-million renovation of the former Art Building on the Kent Campus. J.R. Campbell, MFA, appointed last year as the inaugural director of the Design Innovation (DI) Initiative, recently discussed how it fits into Kent State’s broader research and innovation goals.
“The DI Initiative is much more student-focused but has some pretty deep implications for research as well,” he says. “The core goal of DI is to build a supportive ecosystem for students to become involved in collaborative, cross-disciplinary challenge-based innovation activities.”
