center for socially engaged design

The University of Michigan School of Engineering has a program called The Center for Socially Engaged Design.    From their page:

 

"The Center for Socially Engaged Design empowers students and practitioners with perspectives and skills needed to design effective technology interventions that are good for the world. We believe this requires designers to take into account the fullest social, cultural, economic, and environmental contexts that their design process and intervention will interact with. C-SED provides novel educational resources and fosters a community of research and practice. "    Learn more here
