Design and Policy for Humanitarian Impact is a joint course with School of Design and H. John Heinz III College at Carnegie Mellon University. In this combined lecture and lab-based studio course, students will gain a sense of the history of social innovation with an emphasis on design-centric applications, and the current and future role public policy and design has in shaping and defining conditions for change. This “systems thinking” approach, when applied to challenges at a societal and cultural scale, recognize the relationship between global and local concerns, the need to inform through verifiable data and evidence, and the role that crafters of public policy and design can have in promoting positive social change.
