Barnard/Columbia Design for America (DFA)

All Students

Barnard/Columbia Design for America (DFA) is part of a national network of passionate young thinkers and activists revolutionizing the way college students engage with and improve the world around us. We are moving beyond the classroom to harness the next generation of American social entrepreneurs, using our energy and resources as college students to design and implement local, sustainable projects with the potential for national impact.

Creating interdisciplinary DFA Project Teams of motivated students from all academic backgrounds, we team up with faculty members, Community Partners, and NYC professionals to implement solutions to pressing issues in the arenas of health, education, and the environment. Through collaborative, creative problem solving, DFA believes student innovation is the catalyst for positive, tangible change in the Barnard/Columbia and Harlem/Morningside Heights community.
