Lead by Design

PennDesign educates the next generation of professionals to design, build, plan, and interpret our environment. Our departments and centers are focused on five areas of impact: Energy and Environment, Cities and Regions, Culture and Heritage, Equity and Inclusion, and Innovation and Technology. At this critical moment, we’re leveraging our long and productive history of collaborating across disciplines — art and design, planning and preservation — to take on the world’s greatest challenges. We're poised to reshape the professions we lead as well as the communities we work in. 

Lead By Design will increase resources for Student and Faculty Support, Centers and Programs and Facilities and Spaces.
