The Department of Design is proud to announce the launch of a DESIS Lab! By doing so, it joins an international network of universities and colleges leading in Social Innovation and Sustainability through Design. The DESIS Lab at OSU is built upon the Department’s commitment to advancing design education and serving communities in need. Committed to this creed and the desire to foster a sense of social good through design education, faculty have developed community-engaged learning opportunities and local and international service-learning courses to address social issues, cultivate cultural sensitivity, and practice environmental stewardship.
