Community Partners

Social Impact is at the heart of PennDesign's identity. Since the school's founding over 125 years ago, PennDesign's student and faculty members have joined forces with leading cultural, philanthropic, and social service organizations in Philadelphia and beyond to improve people's lives through art and design.
