Design Fellows Program

Started in 2018, the Design Fellows program has made the outstanding graduate students and young alumni of the Weitzman School integral to applied projects in every discipline in the school, and to the vibrant community of collaborators Praxis is helping to build inside and outside the university. In less than 5 years, faculty and students have seen the Design Fellows experience deepen more than 250 students’ education and multiply the Weitzman School’s capacity for engagement. Our real-world projects create resources and support for diverse groups of students to work together to develop agency in the world and to explore the power of interdisciplinary design, art, planning, and heritage preservation.

We have evolved into a student-centered organization energizing the School’s push for design justice, producing beautiful and strategic work in alliance with community and Indigenous leaders, and acting as pioneers in many design related fields.
