About Design for America

Design for America is a nationwide network of college students motivated by human-centered design. In the group’s studio every semester, Case Western Reserve and Cleveland Institute of Art students form interdisciplinary teams to voluntarily work with community partners over social issues.

This fall, eight project teams worked with local organizations ranging from Cleveland Clinic’s Office of Patient Experience to Rust Belt Riders and the Kelvin Smith Library.

Community organizations that would like to consider partnering with Design for America in the future are invited to express interest through a Google Form.

Organizations also can RSVP for the Design Showcase.
