Joining the DFAmily
We’re so proud to announce that after a year of hard work and dedication, Rice University has been accepted by Design for America (DFA) as an official studio! As one of the newest members of the DFAmily, we have been integrated into an amazing nationwide network that includes studios from universities like Yale, Stanford, Northwestern, Duke, Vanderbilt, Dartmouth, UCLA, and Columbia, to name a few.
The founders of the Rice Studio are currently heading out to Chicago, IL to participate in a national DFA Leadership Studio Conference located in the Segal Design Institute at Northwestern University. Throughout the week, they will undergo a series of training sessions regarding studio management and structure, participate in several design-intensive workshops, network with and listen to some of the greatest thinkers, doers, entrepreneurs, and idealists in the country, and actively engage in the design process by taking on a mini-project to combat urban flooding.
Stay tuned to find out how everything went, and get ready to have a spectacular Design for America studio at Rice this fall!
