Indiana Wesleyan University - Wesley Seminary
IWU wanted the Wesley Seminary to be a place that would reflect the diversity of their international student population and invited connection from the local community. The 23,000-sf graduate studies building was designed to bring different architectural elements and styles into an overall harmony suggestive of diversity and connection. Featuring high-performance glass and lighting controls as well as high-efficiency insulation, structural components, and fixtures, the Seminary at IWU is a LEED certified building. This project gave the IWU campus a building with interactive classrooms, formal and informal gathering and learning space, faculty offices and administrative space while promoting the message of environmental stewardship.
“While everything about the facility communicates ‘welcome’ and ‘excellence,’ the greatest attribute is ‘the facility tells a story.’ From its overall theme – ‘The world is our parish’ – to some of its distinctive features which visually communicate our mission and values, every tour we give of the building retells the story of what is important to us.”
