Human-centered Design

Center for Socially Engaged Design (C-SED)

The Center for Socially Engaged Design empowers students and practitioners with perspectives and skills needed to design effective, socially conscious technology interventions. We believe this requires designers to take into account the fullest social, cultural, economic, and environmental contexts of their design process and to analyze how their own biases shape their approach.
