High-res a student sent me this from the Institute of Design at Stanford because he thought it would resonate with me and my blog. he’s right. i dig it. 
what i find particularly most valuable and interesting about this program is its multidisciplinary nature. when i went to college, i felt both the communication and business schools were outdated and restraining, and so, my school allowed me to design my own major. i worked with faculty to create my own curriculum which included entrepreneurship, communication, psychology and interactive media (the closest thing to IT/tech/internet/ux at the time).
that said, what I appreciate about this program is that it draws on methods from design & engineering, combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. basically, it focuses on design as a way of thinking about and bringing new things into the world. through a focus on doing, this program provides students with practical verses theoretical experience. 
this is where the future of education is going (if conventional education is even needed at all)…
(ps. thanks James for sharing!)
