Please join The School of Design for the 2014-2015 HOW DO YOU DESIGN THE FUTURE? Series at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 15, in Kresge Theater, College of Fine Arts.  
 
Kristin Hughes will give a lecture titled "How Do You Design 'With' the Future?"

Kristin Hughes, associate professor, School of Design, works with members of at-risk communities to address (and, with hope, eventually resolve) complex social problems. Because no one discipline holds the ultimate solution for such problems, Kristin honed a community engagement model of design during her 14 years of practice. Her model generates solutions by fusing the expertise and passion of community members and leaders across disciplines including alternative education, psychology, formal education, health care, fine arts, community organizing and public policy.
