Bridging Two Continents
The University of Notre Dame is proud to announce the Social Design Exchange Program with India through a course titled Social Design: Initiatives, Challenges, & Innovation. Taught and developed by Professor Neeta Verma, the course is a new pilot partnership between The Department of Art, Art History & Design, and the National Institute of Design (NID), India. The course pairs ND students with NID students to explore and identify social issues within the framework of cross-cultural inquiry. Students get a closer look at social inequities within a new paradigm and socio-economic parameter of a rapidly evolving country (India) and its pluralistic culture. Then return home with re-energized perspectives on those very same issues here in the United States.
