School of the Future

Research at the Harvard Graduate School of Design is grounded in the belief that many of the key challenges and opportunities of our era require cooperation among the arts, humanities, and sciences and among the academy, industry, and the public sphere. A key resource for scholars, public and private sector leaders, and design practitioners, the research units inform policy decisions and convene critical discussion on a broad range of issues.
