“As an alum, I know that the Conway School works. Conway prepares students to be collaborative designers and communicators. As governments and businesses continue to recognize the need to address climate change, the need for people that can communicate and build connections between siloed fields continues to grow. Conway prepares students to serve in this capacity.”
