    Justification of Change*

    The MSB Center for Design will sponsor interdisciplinary (and inter-college) project-based learning focused on different forms of design. Such forms include: project design, user experience design, service design, game design, furniture design, document design, civic media, arts integration, lighting design, sound design, and more. Although many schools offer an interdisciplinary, project-based curriculum at the MA level (Parsons School of Design, Stanford's IDEO Lab, or SCAD), Weber State University wants to offer such integrated learning experiences at the undergraduate level. In order to benefit fully from the diversity of design methods and expertise on campus, we need a new and inspiring collaborative platform in which students and faculty teams from across campus can experiment on the design of new products, services and experiences.

    We arrived at our decision to create a Center for Design from two sources: 1) a strategic planning process that recognized the value of design in the modern creative economy and the lack of such a center on campus and 2) the suggestion by donors and advisory board members about the importance of design and its alignment with expertise both in the College of Arts & Humanities and across campus.

    To our knowledge, no such program exists at the undergraduate level in the USHE system.

    Weber State University and USHE would benefit because 1) design aligns with workforce development needs, 2) students need to learn cross-disciplinary methods and teamwork, 3) the Center will provide practical applications of design theory due to its project-based focus.

  • Help: change will be effective at the beginning of the academic year following the catalog deadline

  • Describe new Center

    One of the main missions of Weber State University is to provide learning opportunities to students relevant to their lives and careers and to the modern economy's workforce needs. Since the main driver of wealth in modern, 1st-world economies is innovation, the ideal platforms for innovation are design centers that bring together faculty and students from different but complementary disciplines and aligned with the needs of global and local organizations and businesses. The organizational structure of the center is simple: it consists of a director who identifies design projects, vets the projects, puts design teams together on projects, oversees the process, and monitors the quality of outcomes. No changes are required except buying out time of faculty (with funding already raised for this purpose) and organizing the time of students as internship classes for credit. Some administrative staff may be required depending on the growth of the Center.
