We Are Scout

We are all about an inclusive, supportive design community at Northeastern.

Scout is passionate about Design

We see design as a way of learning, solving problems and bringing people from different disciplines together. Our four programs—Scout Studio, Scout Events, Club Scout and Scout Labs — offer different touch points and access to design.

WHY WE DO IT

To foster the design community at Northeastern

Everyone can find their place in the design community at Northeastern. Whether students are part of the Scout studio or labs teams, attend Scout events, or drop by Club Scout, we are all here to learn as much as we possibly can. Having these spaces and opportunities to collaborate with people who have different skill sets and areas of expertise is essential for better ideas and more meaningful connections across campus.

To become better designers

We believe that the most valuable learning comes when you take the brave plunge into something you have little or no previous experience in. The design community can provide mentorship and guidance when students need help navigating uncharted territories. Designers and creative thinkers can share things they have learned in higher level classes, on co-op, and from each other. No one can go at it alone and we are all eager to learn more and do more through practice.

To build better solutions through Design.

Northeastern’s strong entrepreneurial spirit fuels Scout. We collaborate with other organizations in the entrepreneurship ecosystem to contribute insight and create value through design. We help bridge the gap between creative makers and thinkers, making design accessible to our peers from all disciplines, age groups, and experience levels. We promote and utilize the design thinking process—critique, testing, iteration and implementation—as an effective way to approach problems in any industry.
