Design Swarm
The Challenge: Design the dream PhD program(s) that benefit our communities.
Date and time: May 11, 8:30am -3 pm (breakfast and lunch provided)
Location: MacCorry Hall, room D201

The School of Graduate Studies is organizing a design swarm on the theme of dream PhD programs that benefit our communities. Join us in a fun, creative and action focused six hours of blue-sky thinking, designing and fine-tuning your dream PhD program that specifically addresses the needs of communities both within and beyond academia. Work with your fellow graduate students from across the University as part of an interdisciplinary team to develop ideas, identify curricular elements, build your program structure, plan your marketing strategy, and ultimately pitch it to a panel of judges. Teams of 4-5 graduate students will work within a ‘design thinking’ framework to generate ideas, principles, and program models that address the broad theme of “PhDs within and for Community.”
