Single Moms Success Design Challenge
Education Design Lab uses a human-centered design process in combination with tools from other industries to help schools, employers, government agencies, foundations, nonprofits, and innovators to design, test, and implement new higher education models that improve opportunity for historically underserved learners.
Delgado Community College was selected by Education Design lab as one of four community colleges to participate in the Single Moms Success Design Challenge which is generously supported by the ECMC foundation.
