Design Portfolio


Design for America is a network of Campus Studios across the country. Each Campus Studio embody DFA’s mission building: design innovation leadership while making a meaningful social impact. Students from interdisciplinary teams work with local community partners to tackle pressing, real-world challenges. Teams work throughout the school year on projects that last anywhere between eight weeks to a year. Studios are supported by professional experts who provide mentorship, faculty members who connect students to university-resources, and the DFA network which offers instruction and best practices. Students prepare for a future in the field of innovation, build life-long friendships, and help change their communities for the better.
