Design Lecture Series

Each year our annual Design Lecture Series brings transdisciplinary thinkers and practitioners from around the world to campus, believing that the power of design addresses some of today's most pressing challenges. Our speakers come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines including design, business, the nonprofit sector, education, science, and more.

We hope you will join us!


Unfortunately, due to the unfolding situation with the coronavirus outbreak and the preventative measures Carnegie Mellon University is implementing to protect the well-being of its university community, the Design Lecture Series has been canceled for the Spring 2020 semester.
