Becky Slogeris

Becky Slogeris is the Associate Director at the Center for Social Design at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), where she is responsible for program coordination, operations and communications for various initiatives engaging MICA students and faculty in social change through human-centered design. Becky also runs the Center's Practice-based studios, which bring together students at MICA from various disciplines to collaborate with outside partners on pressing social problems. Past partners include Baltimore City Health Department, Behavioral Health System Baltimore, Johns Hopkins Center for Child and Community Health Research, Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health, and the Baltimore Campaign for Grade Level Reading.

In addition to her teaching experience in higher education, Becky has extensive experience working with youth. She developed social justice curriculum and taught middle school students at Elev8 Baltimore as a Children's Defense Fund Freedom Schools Servant Leader Intern and Out-of-School Time Coach and facilitated design research workshops with high school students through the Center for Urban Pedagogy in New York. She has developed national project-based middle and high school curriculum for clients like the USDA, FEMA, First the Seed Foundation, Sandy Hook Promise, and Choose To Be Nice and worked with partners like Teach for All, Teach for America, Baltimore Urban Debate League, and the White House's My Brother's Keeper Initiative to infuse design into education.

Currently, Becky runs an after school social design program for high school students at Wide Angle Youth Media where students use design to address pressing issues for youth in Baltimore such as transportation, attendance, suspension, and health. She's also focused on building civic literacy and leadership among Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS) through My Baltimore Book, an interactive guide to Baltimore's past, present, and future. My Baltimore Book is currently being used as BCPS's core social studies curriculum for third grade students.

Becky was recognized by Graphic Design USA as a 2012 Student to Watch, and received a 2012 Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Social Design Fellowship to continue her work on the BMore Fit Teacher Toolkit, an exercise tool for engaging students and improving their academic performance in the classroom, and the Baltimore CARES Service-Learning Curriculum, a guidebook for revitalizing vacant lots with high school students. Becky also received a 2015 Sappi Ideas That Matter grant to fund printing and distribution of My Baltimore Book to over 14,000 Baltimore City Public School students.

Becky is a graduate of MICA with a BFA in graphic design and an MA in Social Design, where her thesis work focused on designing curriculum and tools for teachers and empowering students to create change in their communities.
