The Design Thinking Interest Group is a forum for UNMC faculty, staff and students interested in expanding Design Thinking strategies and solutions across campus and beyond.
The group's mission is to serve as an interprofessional team who collaborates with academic and practice partners to generate innovative solutions to complex issues through use of human-centered design methods. Our vision is to transform UNMC into a worldwide center for excellence in Design Thinking in health and healthcare education.
Members of the group have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including to:
- Serve as a coach or facilitator for Design Thinking activities
- Participate in special projects in partnership with Stanford, the UNO Scott Scholars program, and other community organizations
- Create human-centered solutions to generate innovation in health products and services, health systems, diversity, equity and inclusion, and more
- Drive educational scholarship in the field of human-centered design
Further, group members will network and collaborate with UNO, outside universities and external experts as we seek to make UNMC a worldwide center for human-centered design solutions.
