Guiding good design practice

Sustainable design is a philosophy that guides design practice to ecologically benign, socially equitable and economically viable outcomes. Also known as good design, the intention of this philosophy is to use designed spaces, objects or messages to prompt meaningful behavioral changes that advance a sustainable society.

Integrating into curriculum

The interior design, fashion design and fashion merchandising fields present exciting challenges for future professionals to apply this philosophy to commercial and residential interior spaces, apparel design and manufacturing as well as merchandising strategies. Our department offers curriculum opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students that will prepare practitioners to mobilize their industries for a sustainable future.
