Design for America has grown from 1 to 8 schools
with 6-8 more on the way
for fall 2012. We’ve grown our network to include 600 students from over 60 different majors, the top 3 being Engineering, Psychology and our favorite, Undecided, with 56% being female. DFA student co-founders and fellows, Mert and Yuri, started the Healthbox Incubator
in Chicago on Monday and were awarded $50,000 for Swipesense. DFA student co-founder Hannah Chung and team lead, Aaron Horowitz moved this week to Providence, RI to bring Jerry the Bear to life
. DFA was featured on the cover of Fast Company
. We visited students at each of our 8 studios for their end-of term reviews
, with special guests ranging from deans, design professionals to students and applicants from other schools.It is only together that we have the courage to be a generation of creative activists daring to say that our communities deserve better and daring to face the unknown to make it happen. We look forward to continuing the journey with you in the year to come.
