DAAPcares Presentation Archive

DAAPcares was launched in 2011 to recognize work by DAAP students, faculty, staff, and alumni that improves the quality of life. Each year since, this collective work of research and innovative projects has been showcased in an annual event during spring semester.

We invite you to view the breadth of compelling projects from prior years' DAAPcares presentations below. 


Over 20 projects were awarded in 2021. Distinctions were given in the areas such as Interdisciplinary, Sustainability, Innovation, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Despite implications caused by the pandemic, the annual DAAPcares celebration still occured virtually. More than 25 projects were recognized for achieving sustainable outcomes with environmental, economic, and cultural equity. 

Not only did almost 30 projects get recognized that year, but locations ranged from Cincinnati and Puerto Rico to Iran and Nepal. Plus, DAAPcares won 3rd place at the Student Impact Symposium that year.

In the 2017-18 academic year DAAPcares recognized the work of 20 projects. View the presentation that includes project descriptions, participants, images, and more.
