Tiger Challenge helps students and community partners build more equitable and joyful societies. Taking place inside and outside of the classroom, students and advisers address complex societal issues in partnership with nonprofit and government partners. Teams develop lasting innovations across education, health, sustainability, social justice, and civic life.

The program is grounded in design thinking, a body of techniques that unlocks empathy, creativity, collaboration, and open-mindedness. Learn about the design thinking methodology.

Innovation through innovation can take many paths, and so can Tiger Challenge. Opportunities include:
