It’s the end of another school year, and for this newsletter, we’re focusing not on what goes on inside our program, but on what our graduates are doing out in the world. We have always defined success as more than the number of students who come to get their graduate degree here, but also on…

You Can Come Home Again: Alums Return for a Special Lecture Night

Alumni Pragya Mishra, Josh Treuhaft, Rhea Rakshit, Sebastian Barrera and Akshata Malhotra returned to DSI last month for an exchange of knowledge and insights at the DSI Global Guest Lecture.

Life After DSI: Josh Treuhaft

One can well imagine that the typical DSI applicant is an idealist. We who are interested in what Daniel Pinchbeck once called the ‘brilliantly nebulous’ field of Design for Social Innovation are those who are imagining the world as a different and hopefully better place. But alumnae Josh Treuhaft explains that while our program might attract idealists, it eventually makes pragmatists out of them.

A Report from Open House No. Five; an Invitation for International Applicants

It wasn’t all that long ago that our first open house took place with a handful of faculty, in a temporary space, with no current students or student work to show. That was our first reception, before DSI opened, way back in 2012. This year, everything but the pioneering spirit and commitment to a career that benefits the world was different than that first gathering.
