Who We Are


SCROLL DOWN

Who We Are


INTERDISCIPLINARY.

We believe that problems are solved better in groups - specifically groups made up of whole brained teams. DFA leverages the amazingly diverse culture at UC, where we are surrounded by students of countless majors and backgrounds. So no matter if you are a designer, engineer, marketer, entrepreneur, dancer, lawyer, artist, teacher, accountant, or anything else—you are welcome to join the #DFAmily!

 

REAL EXPERIENCE.

The University of Cincinnati offers students a balance of educational excellence and real-world experience, and our DFA studio reflects that commitment. We don’t just talk about changing the world, we do it.

 

CONNECTED.

Our urban campus gives us access to many professionals, companies, and organizations to immerse ourselves in the community and develop a network of people who are committed to bettering our city and the world.
