Campus Studios

Campus studios are the heart of DFA. DFA student-led studios excite local organizations, mentors, and interdisciplinary student members to practice design innovation and help change their communities for the better.

National Leadership Studio

DFA Leadership Studio is the signature, five-day design sprint and leadership conference designed to prepare the best leaders in our network for the upcoming year.

National Sponsored Projects

Design for America national partnership projects unite companies and the DFA Network to address timely social innovation initiatives. Corporations connect with smart, self-motivated, well-trained students who in turn gain real-world experience and a glimpse inside a company’s culture and innovation process.
