Innovation Fellows

The Innovation Fellows program equips faculty with a powerful framework of design thinking, a human-centered approach to tackle challenges and create impactful solutions. Faculty learn skills and strategies to help students develop empathy, cultivate a growth mindset, ideate like a designer, and embrace collaboration.  Each year, a small cohort travels to the Nueva Design Thinking Institute in California over the summer and then works together over the next two years to implement design thinking in their daily work.
