We are hosting a student design challenge on BELONGING.
Saturday 2 April from 10am to 4pm at Capen Annex.

We are inviting students to sign up for the Belonging design challenge in teams of 3-5 members – teams of friends, classmates, or representatives from a student organization. (If you’re flying solo, you’re still welcome to sign up and we’ll match you up with some other great students). Sign up using the form below.

On challenge day, the teams will meet to unpack what Belonging means at Smith and then to generate some ideas about how to nurture a sense of belonging on campus. At the end of the day, the Design Thinking Initiative will pick some favorite ideas and work with the selected teams to refine, support, and possibly implement their ideas.

We will use the design thinking process as a guide for this idea generation. You don’t need to know anything about design thinking. All you need is passion, the willingness to ask questions, and an appetite for change.

The design thinking process will help us frame what belonging means to different students, how it might be achieved, why it matters to do so, and who we are designing for.
