The Great Lakes Design Lab

The Great Lakes Design Lab (GLDL) includes diverse faculty and researchers from around the Great Lakes. The GLDL develops research, professional, and civic-based engagement strategies to help smaller Great Lakes communities achieve "resilient equity" through study and practice in interconnected cultural and ecological systems. The GLDL works collaboratively with community-based organizations, nonprofits, and local city and state agencies.
