Design Thinking & Social Innovation in Service-Learning
Office of Service-Learning (OSL) believes in the power of social innovation. We equip students with tools to integrate research-oriented innovation in the problem-solving process. Design thinking is one of these tools, a method that teaches students to envision creative solutions to problems and build prototypes to rapidly test out their ideas. Each social innovation project is impact-oriented and offers students the learning opportunity to take advantage of their broad liberal arts education to become innovative problem solvers.
