Join us for our second annual Dean’s Charrettes!

Whether you are a Design, Fashion, Media, Performing Arts, Game Development, Computer Technology, Architecture or Business student—you are a creative! The Dean's Charrettes are a unique opportunity to collaborate with students and professionals from a variety of disciplines and work on real world projects where you can learn and apply creative skills. Working in a fun, studio-based environment you will apply skills in design thinking, systems thinking, creative problem solving, service design, communication design, design management and interdisciplinary design strategy to solve complex challenges.

This is an excellent networking opportunity and a platform for you to showcase your skills to potential employers.
