Spotlight On: NewSchool of Architecture & Design

Innovation was on display for ARC participants who attended an Institutional Showcase at the NewSchool of Architecture & Design in San Diego’s East Village.

Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) is another institution that welcomed WSCUC ARC participants to its beautiful campus. All of the sessions were in the Fermanian Conference Center with large windows and spacious ocean views. But it wasn’t the great views and beauty that were most inspiring. It was the PLNU faculty and students sharing with us how they live one of their core values: “Service as an expression of faith.”
