Assistant Professor of Graphic Design

Sang Lee joined Drake University in August 2023 as an assistant professor of graphic design. Before coming to Drake University, Sang taught printmaking and drawing courses at Southern Illinois University and graphic design courses at Iowa State University. She was also named a recipient of the Teaching Excellence Award at Iowa State University in 2019.

Sang received a B.F.A. in Fine Art from Columbus College of Art and Design, an M.F.A. in 2D Art from Southern Illinois University, and an M.F.A. in Graphic Design from Iowa State University. Sang's interests lie in inclusive design, human-computer interaction, user experience design, co-designing with marginalized communities, bookmaking, installation art, printmaking, and design for social justice.

Sang's research investigates the impact design has on our society and the importance of including the participants in design processes, as responsible designers can serve as mediators involving often-excluded marginalized groups to challenge and address problems in our communities. She is especially interested in design projects centered around marginalized communities.

Sang is currently working on her doctorate research in Human-Computer Interaction. Through this endeavor, she aims to further the understanding of the intersectional identity of audiences and designers, emphasizing the importance of addressing issues relating to equity and biases in design classrooms. More importantly, she is investigating how to support educators and students as they create projects that focus on marginalized communities.
