DSI Welcoming New Faculty: Spring 2022

Sappi 2014 Ideas that Matter Grant Recipients: Michelle Kwon, Meghan Lazier, and Robin Newman from Design for Social Innovation at SVA

Sappi Fine Paper North America’s Ideas that Matter program is aimed at helping designers create and implement print projects for charitable causes. Since 1999, the program has funded over 500 nonprofit projects, contributing more than $12.5 million to causes that use design as a positive force in society. The program is open to North American designers who are partnered with a nonprofit organization and have created a solution that is ready for implementation. This year’s nine winning projects highlight how designers can use the power of paper as a catalyst for social change and innovation.

Congratulations to our students Michelle, Meghan, and Robin, who won a grant for their game “Say No More” — a game for middle school girls in the United States that helps them understand and create healthy relationship boundaries. The non profit to benefit from the grant is ECPAT-USA.
