“Through a transdisciplinary course of study with global reach, the GSD is training the next generation of design leaders to think collaboratively, cultivate creativity, and design outside the lines.”

Spring Appeal Design Outside the LinesComplex global challenges cannot be solved with a single perspective or by a single discipline. Design brings together disparate fields through collaborative interrogation and creation. The GSD continually reaches beyond our core disciplines and geographic borders to broaden the scope of design knowledge and inspire our talented students.

The potential of our students is unmatched, but the resources to support them are not. Financial aid remains an area of critical need for the School. You can directly support students through a gift to the GSD Fund. Your contribution allows students to get the most out of the GSD’s unrivaled academic and extracurricular opportunities. Join the Grounded Visionaries campaign with a gift to the GSD by June 30 and invest in a creative future of designing outside the lines.

Make a gift.
