Convening and Co-evolving Systemic Design

The SDA was formed to convene educators, practitioners, and researchers to co-evolve an interdisciplinary field over the long term.


Academic programs

Higher education programs and customizable degrees that include systemic design courses, traditional and new media design, and social science methods courses that round out a systemic design concentration.

A Growing Base of Research

The field emerging as systemic design has jumped ahead to engage societal issues now recognised as ever more important for designers to address, ranging from design for health and well-being, quality of life, socioeconomics, urbanization, policy design, and cultural development.


The featured resources are uniquely associated with their launch or development at RSD symposia and have continued in development for research, teaching, and training.

Featured Books

Academic and trade books have been published by SDA members as the field has developed.
