Humanizing Through Design

Humanizing Through Design

The School of Industrial Design is dedicated to elevating our students’ voices and opportunities. Our goal, as designers and educators, is to be better advocates for all people through meaningful interaction, curriculum, service, and inclusiveness.

At the Institute level, Georgia Tech's Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion offers resources and programs to promote the academic growth and success of underrepresented minorities and women students on campus.

Our School's Commitment

As designers, we share a fundamental goal: to improve the world by developing solutions for societal challenges. Systemic inequality, a deeply entrenched and pervasive issue, is  product of flawed structures, systems, processes, and biased feedback loops. Our dedication lies in being part of the solution, employing design to foster more inclusive and human-centered approaches.

Our commitment involves actively ensuring that underrepresented groups are not only heard but also have significant input in the design process, influencing the products, services, and experiences we create, and ensuring they are reflective of diverse perspectives and needs. This situation presents us with a unique opportunity to excel as educators, designers, and individuals, striving to be the best in our fields and as human beings.
