Design for America of NYU is founded on the passion and belief that we, the students of NYU want to use Human-Centered Design to tackle local social issues to develop solutions that have impact locally and globally.

Our students from different nationalities, academic interests, and vivid backgrounds, are united by the idea that collaboration will definitely bring about changes for the betterment.

As a Studio, we are part of a movement that tackles the most daunting issues using our abilities at the local level.

DFA NYU is a powerful platform to connect students from different schools and develop a community of socially mindful change makers. There are multitudes of opportunities for students to go outside of the classroom and put their learning into action, through social innovation and entrepreneurship. Students transform from thinkers to doers through collaboration and bringing ideas to life.
