DESIGN IS CHANGE [DECHA] represents a global multidisciplinary research effort of integrated graphic design, devoted to the creation, design, implementation and evaluation of community-based non-profit projects for social change. DECHA supports and trains undergraduate students in research and applied, community-partnered, careers in integrated Graphic Design and Fine Arts. In the year 2000, Prof. Silvia Pease created this project that is now being implemented at Florida International University.
