Faculty & Staff

A tight-knit community powered by optimism

ID faculty are recognized around the globe as pioneers in human-centered design, systems design, and other methods that apply design to the real world.

Aside from leading coursework and supporting student projects, all full-time faculty are actively engaged research initiatives. Students have the opportunity to participate in this research, applying lessons from coursework toward innovative problem-solving.
