IN is a retail venture where students, alumni, and faculty develop products for sale and learn about the intersection between design and entrepreneurship. IN provides employment opportunities for students where they develop new skills under the mentorship of experienced faculty and designers. Our vision is to create high quality, locally produced, well designed products and explore customized designs with our clients. IN is a community where students, faculty, industry and the general public come together to celebrate a love of good design, new ideas and collaboration.
Profits from the IN store support student scholarships.
IN is also a mentored studio space. We hire students to work on a variety of design projects for internal clients under staff supervision. IN also offers peer to peer support for students through Peerconnect and its Peer Coaches.
