ServeDesign Center

The Indiana University ServeDesign Center works in partnership with campus and community to advance engaged scholarship and prepare students for lifelong civic and social responsibility in an increasingly diverse and complex global society.

Working with stakeholders on the local, regional, national and international levels, with a particular focus on regional and international stakeholders, ServeDesign facilitates collaboration within the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design by offering faculty grants, service-learning training through CITL, and match-making through pairing faculty and community partners.

Riley Children's Health | Bloomington, Indiana

Bo Choi, Deb Christiansen, and Lori Frye worked with their students to complete a service-learning project last semester that benefits Riley patients and families. They delivered hand-made, colorful, embroidered blankets and tote bags that will be placed on the shelves of the toy room for distribution by child life specialists, therapists and nurses, who can give them to families to be taken home as a comfort item.
