The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all aspects of our lives: how we work, how we socialize, how we provide health care, how we take care of our most vulnerable members of society, and how we die. The Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures is creating a series of publication(s) and webinars which considers the post-COVID-era, focusing on how we as a society will be able to design healthy futures.

As a part of this effort, we want to harness the energy and talent of students eager to make a change in healthcare and healing environments in the context of human connection and safety in the post pandemic world.

To that end, we are announcing a student competition as part of our “Life after COVID-19” series!


Teams of 2-3 students are invited to design a human experience innovation located in a hypothetical university healthcare or wellness center common spate to promote safety, health, and human connection on the post-pandemic world.

Each team will choose a specific healthcare serve and particular common space for the human experience innovation that best supports the health and well being of the facility staff and specific patient population.

Important dates:

March 29: Proposal and design pitch due

April 2: Finalists selected and notified

April 8: Finalists present via Zoom to the CIHF Advisory Board
