Join us on Friday April 3rd & Saturday April 4th at Morris Library, Guyan Auditorium, and the Pulliam Hall Design Wing for our annual Design Days event.  

    Every Spring, the Design Program hosts a student-centered design conference called Design Days. This annual event brings professional designers, both alumni and non-alumni, to campus to share their knowledge and expertise with our design students, faculty, and guests. 

    This year we celebrate the 65th anniversay of the Design Program. Since its humble beginnings in the Allyn Building in 1955 to its current beautiful space in the Pullam Hall Design Wing, the design program at SIU Carbondale has continued in its strong tradition of creative problem solving and making.

    This year’s theme is VISION. Our speakers and conference participants will look at the concept of vision: being a design visionary;  defining how the world sees design; utilizing ones personal skills to define  a vison for his/her/their own path; envisioniong the future of design. Stay tuned as we add speakers to our line-up.

    We hope to see you here!



    Design Days is a Free event. To help us with catering and seating options, please register at the link below by Wednesday, April 1st.
