Ann Marie Conrado

Associate Professor, Industrial Design

Ann-Marie Conrado is an Associate Professor in Industrial Design in the Department of Art, Art History and Design. She uses design to address social and humanitarian concerns here at home in South Bend, as well as abroad in Nepal. She has worked on programs with the City’s Office of Innovation as well as funded grants to address issues of food insecurity and accessing social services. She has worked in Nepal with fair trade artisans to increase demand for traditional craft by developing contemporary products for the global marketplace. At Notre Dame, she brings that ethos to the classroom, engaging students on dynamic community-engaged projects as well as bringing students to Nepal to work on various research projects. She was awarded the Young Educator of the Year Award by the Industrial Designers Society of America for her contributions educating the next generation of designers in realizing the potential to advance the common good. With the center’s support, she plans to continue collaborating with the International Summer Service Program (ISSLP) for discipline-based placements in Nepal as well as engaging local partners in human-centered innovation to address various needs across our community
