The CUDC LLC brings together upper class and graduate students from a variety of design majors including: architecture, art, graphic communications, landscape architecture, packaging science, production studies and theater. CUDC aims to connect student designers because design creativity and collaboration are vital ingredients for advancing healthy, sustainable and inspiring communities. Members of CUDC have opportunities to travel on design-related field trips as well as opportunities to apply their skills to on-campus design challenges. Most-significantly, participants enjoy daily out-of-class connections with other student designers as well as access to invested faculty mentors.

Did You Know?

Student Perspective
“I think that the opportunity to get to know people in other design-related fields and be able to get their feedback about projects you are working on and hear about what they are doing has the most potential to provide a unique and rewarding experience.”
– Allie Tate, architecture major
