What is Design Thinking Leadership?

Design Thinking Leadership (DTL) is a five-day program for members of the Class of 2023 to connect with students with similar interests. Through design-thinking workshops and small group activities, participants will develop a strategic mindset for problem solving. Students will engage with local businesses to collaborate on real-world initiatives under the mentorship of alumni, faculty, staff, and upperclass student leaders. With emphasis on creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, this program welcomes students of all academic interests.

Design Thinking Leadership does not require you to have any entrepreneurship or design preparation. You only need to be interested in connecting with like-minded students.

When and where will the program take place?

Design Thinking Leadership is held on Bucknell's campus from Friday, Aug. 16 - Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019. Come and meet your new Bucknell classmates for a fun and creative experience before New Student Orientation.
