Center for Design Thinking
The Center for Design Thinking promotes empathy, collaboration, creativity, action and iteration, and the value of curiosity.
These skills are best applied to tackling real, complex, and unscripted problems that have no known solutions, also known as “wicked problems.”
Through curricular and co-curricular activities, students have opportunities to experience and practice the process and mindsets of design thinking.
From the FabLab, where students can engage in the practice and art of making, to workshops, where students can get a taste of design thinking, to full courses, where students learn to tackle real world challenges, the Center for Design Thinking offers many active learning experiences to grow design thinkers ready to tackle 21st century problems.
Working with community stakeholders to solve real problems in line with the mission and goals of a Manhattanville education, students are empowered to enact change.
Through partnerships with our Mary T. Clark Center for Religion and Social Justice and our Center for Career Development, students take their knowledge and skills of design thinking and apply that learning to creative problem-solving with community partners.
The Center for Design Thinking supports a problem-based learning education at Manhattanville so that our students learn to use design thinking to become positive, creative changemakers both on campus and off.
All right, so here we are at the Center for Design Thinking. Let's go inside and check it out.

Nestled just beyond GoValiants.com Field and Kennedy Gymnasium, Manhattanville Field measures 405 feet to straight-away center, 320 to right field and 330 to left field.
The field features plenty of bleacher seating down the first-base and third-base lines, as well as a scenic viewing area on a berm above the right-field fence and on the hill along to the third-base line.
The field also boasts a full, state-of-the-art wireless scoreboard just beyond the left-center field wall to provide fans with inning-by-inning scores, batter counts and all necessary in-game information, while spacious dugouts were recently renovated to provide a comfortable home for both the Valiants and their opponents.
Other recent additions to the grounds include a permanent wind screen along the outfield fence and protective barriers in front of both teams’ dugouts.
GoValiants.com Field has been home to the Valiant soccer, field hockey and lacrosse programs since 2005.
The facility underwent a complete renovation in the summer of 2016, installing a brand-new turf surface, new fencing and ball-stop netting to surround the facility, and new bleachers to seat at least 500 spectators.
Surrounded by a lighting system, scoreboard, press box and bleacher-style seating, GoValiants.com Field is made up of the state-of-the-art Shaw Legion synthetic turf system, a soft and resilient playing surface that provides predictable, consistent ball roll and increased player performance.
The field’s durability and elaborate drainage system allow the Valiants to play in all kinds of weather and also allow all Manhattanville teams to make use of the field for training, practice and games at all times of the year.
The home of the “Valiants,”, this building houses a number of facilities and amenities for our students. It houses: a newly renovated basketball court, strength and conditioning facility including free weights & squat racks, a swimming pool, a dance studio, and batting cages. It is also home of the Manhattanville Athletics Department and the Sports Medicine team.
The Kennedy Gymnasium is the hub for our intramural athletics program. The outdoor athletic facilities includes: a baseball field, softball field, tennis courts, fields for soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.
There are a total of 22 athletic division III teams represented at the College.
The Ophir Field is the newest addition to the Athletic Complex.
Ophir Field gives Valiant students and student-athletes a premier on-campus turf that puts the College on par with the top facilities in Division III.
The field sets Manhattanville apart as one of few D-III schools in the region to boast an indoor turf facility.
The full turf field will be available for most of the school year as an outdoor facility and also includes a seasonal 90,000-square-foot bubble for the winter months that will house large turf training surfaces, fitness training areas as well as basketball and volleyball courts.
During all months of the year, the facility will greatly enhance the ability of Manhattanville student-athletes to train at preferred times, decreasing the potential for conflict with class schedules and allowing multiple teams to practice simultaneously.
The indoor bubble will also significantly benefit Valiant winter and spring teams, allowing for more on-campus training sessions and decreasing the need for off-hour and off-campus practices, as well as providing another space for Manhattanville's growing intramural and recreation program as well.
Manhattanville also has the distinct advantage of having its own fenced-in bullpen located along the right-field line, while opponents also utilize a bullpen area located just beyond its dugout on the third-base side as well.
In the northernmost corner of Manhattanville College, the newly renovated Manhattanville Field is the exclusive home of the Valiant softball program.
Manhattanville Field recently received a complete renovation that has turned the facility into one of the best softball fields in the area.
As a result, the Valiants and their opponents now enjoy fully enclosed and covered dugouts as well as a permanent outfield fence that measures 200 feet all the way around.
Both the infield and outfield surfaces were re-leveled as well to provide surer hops and a better playing experience.
Also as part of the renovation, there is now more room for spectators to sit and enjoy the Valiant softball team along the baselines as well as on bleachers throughout the outfield.
The Manhattanville men's and women's tennis teams play on state-of-the-art outdoor hardcourts located just across the road from Kennedy Gymnasium and surrounded by GoValiants.com Field and the Manhattanville Baseball Field.
There are six fully gated, professional grade courts, complete with surrounding wind screens thanks to the programs' partnership with USTA Eastern.
Not only do these courts support our varsity programs but it supports Manhattanville College's Professional Tennis Management Program.
