Citizen Interaction Design introduces civic projects in Lansing

On April 11, Lansing Mayor Andy Schor addressed about 40 people attending the Civic Tech Exposition, a presentation featuring the work of University of Michigan students at Lansing City Hall.

Surrounding this group were colorful posters illustrating projects the students had completed for their Citizen Interaction Design (CID) class winter term. The student teams worked directly with citizens and civic leaders of Lansing and Ferndale.

CID is an interdisciplinary course offered by the U-M School of Information (UMSI) that requires students to work in local Michigan communities to develop information tools promoting citizen engagement with their local governments.
