The Design Research Institute’s key goals are twofold: to educate students for the future and to foster innovative, creative research.
The Design Research Institute applies design thinking to creative research. We use the expertise and experience of artists and designers to collaborate, research, and build knowledge for the future. We transfer creative thinking into practical contributions to industry, community, and cultural life.
