WHO WE ARE.
The Design + Innovation Club educates and empowers SOM students to apply design thinking to busines challenges and to develop innovative solutions to challenging problems. We are a cross-sector club: we believe that all students, regardless of whether they're going into corporate life, public service, or entrepreneurship, will find value in understanding how to generate ideas through a constructive and iterative process. We also strive to create a sense of community within our club to encourage collaboration and expose students to diverse viewpoints.

WHAT WE DO.
We teach students to solve problems through various design frameworks, ideation strategies, diverse team organization, group facilitation methods, and rapid prototyping and experimentation. Our curriculum covers topics in:
> Process Design
> Product Design
> People Design
We work closely with our strong alumni network and the SOM Career Development Office to give students exposure to D+I related internship and full-time offerings across many fields. Our goal is to equip students with universally applicable skills that will give them an advantage in any industry and function.
We are the only club at SOM focused on both professional development AND on having fun. We regularly host socail events, including:
> Dippin' Dots n' Draw
> Gingerbread House Competition
