REO Council to host networking events on ‘Design and ISU’s Grand Challenges’
In spring 2017 all departments in the College of Design responded to the “Grand Challenges” identified by Iowa State University: enabling healthy lives; building sustainable human and natural ecosystems; designing next-generation materials and manufacturing technologies; creating data-driven science and information systems for societal challenges; and developing global citizens and our workforce.
The college’s Research, Extension and Outreach Council invites all faculty, staff and interested students to reconvene to discuss the impact and role of design, arts and humanities in addressing these grand challenges. The council also will share a sixth challenge proposed by the Architecture Research Committee: advancing novel methods, venues and forums in which new forms of knowledge can be constructed.
Sessions will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. Fridays, Feb. 9 and Feb. 16, in 130 Design. Food will be provided.
