Design for Social Innovation Newsletter: June 2017

An update from the front of social design
Newsletter

It’s summer. School is out. Time to reflect, prepare, appreciate; to review the past and think about the year ahead. Another class nailed their thesis presentations, graduated and is out in the world, ready for it. Soon to be second year students are working at jobs and internships, researching the ideas that will grow into thesis projects next year. We prepare by welcoming new faculty, evaluating and refining syllabi, speakers and programs for September. When another exciting cohort will begin again. At the moment, we enjoy being in between.

International Students Information Session

Blog

Welcome to our international information session, wherever you are in the world. We have a tradition to post, after our New York reception, an online welcome of sorts to all our international applicants. In this film, you’ll find an overview of the program, and answers to the questions we are most often asked, from our first and second year students. We’ve tried to cover the main languages spoken by our cohorts. If you don’t find the answer among these that you were looking for, please make sure to email and ask us.
