What We Do

We are “Cultural Enrichers”*who fuse research into designs that create healthy and connected communities in which
everyone can thrive and who share the CAST commitment, which means “to form by this process.”
Our team is led by Founder and Director Dr. Tasoulla Hadjiyanni
and includes students, faculty, organizations, institutions, and advocates.

* The term “Cultural Enrichers” was coined by Traci Engel Lesneski, CEO, President, and Principal with MSR Design.
