SALA alumni often find their design education allows them to explore unanticipated tangents following graduation. This can mean applying their design skills to a wide range of scales that stretch beyond their discipline; assisting professional or community organizations in need of leadership or starting new ones; or entering entirely new professions. TANGENTS brings back to school a diverse group of nine SALA alumni in different stages of their careers to discuss their experiences.

In this second panel, alumni discuss their after-hours, pro-bono community engagements.

Moderators: Leslie Van Duzer and Liana Zheng
