Design Justice

The Collective is an intentional group of students, staff, and faculty who represent the justice-centered work that is already happening within our college. We find ways to collectively support the work through research and community-engaged scholarship.

Join the Collective

The Design Justice Collective is open to all students and employees in the College of Design at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.


Our vision for Design Justice centers on intentional community relationships which support anti-racist culture shifts, decolonized pedagogy, and the liberation of underinvested communities within design academia and industry. We ask that you answer the following questions to help us better understand your interest in being part of the collective.
