They will work at different scales, ranging from international policy addressing global challenges such as climate change and conflict resolution, to national and regional discussions about equity and equality, through to local projects in communities or in their own personal networks.

Several will become entrepreneurs creating ventures working across social and public sectors. Some will test the limits of organizational boundaries, and find that they have to invent new kinds of institution. Scaling up and down as they research, imagine, play and create new kinds of entity, these students will find that their ability to be comfortable with being uncomfortable will make them valued members and leaders of teams and projects. They will use knowledge from art, design, the social sciences and management but they will also encounter the limits of knowledge and engage with design- based practices to work through these. They will be willing and able to discuss the limits of defining what constitutes better . They will be able to tolerate and work through challenging encounters with and as stakeholders and other kinds of professional who have different stakes in the past, present and future.

Some of them will succeed. This will be something that matters.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
