Design in service of broader social issues.
The world around us is largely shaped by design—the products, services, infrastructures, systems and narratives that form our experience are all designed. At Smith College, we question gender, race, ethnicity, power and ability as dynamics that shape who gets to participate in creating the world we live in. Students become critically engaged with the processes shaping our reality.
