NEW COURSE: Designing the World’s Future - The UN Sustainable Development Goals

The University of Maryland is committed to addressing and proposing solutions to the grand challenges facing the world today. The Office of International Affairs, the School of Public Policy and the Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship have teamed up to launch a new, innovative one-credit course for Spring 2021 that introduces first-year students to the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a blueprint for addressing grand challenges to achieve a more equitable and sustainable future for all.

Through a series of guest lectures featuring the founders of the SDGs and international practitioners, students will work virtually and collaboratively on projects with peers from across UMD’s global network using design thinking methods and the SDGs framework to engage in creative problem-solving for the improvement of the common good.
