The Ludwick Center for Spirituality, Cultural Understanding, and Community Engagement is envisioned as an interfaith gathering place for the University of La Verne, located in the heart of its La Verne campus. This new facility, scheduled to open in fall 2019, will provide ample space and resources for our highly diverse student body to reflect, meditate, and engage in dialogue.
Features will include a large sacred space, three classrooms, a group prayer and meditation room, a yoga and quiet room, offices, a courtyard, and spaces for collaboration, study, and work. One of the key initiatives supported by the Create the Future campaign, the Ludwick Center replaces La Verne’s original chapel, an intimate space that was built to serve a much smaller student body.
Every University Needs a Heart
The Ludwick Center will become the heart of the university, connecting the present with our Brethren heritage, promoting religious and cultural tolerance, and offering a space where everyone can feel that they belong. It will be home to the following offices:
- The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life
- The Office of Civic and Community Engagement
- The Office of Multicultural Services
- The Office of International Services and Engagement

Now more than ever, the Ludwick Center for Spirituality, Cultural Understanding, and Community Engagement is critical to the success of our university and the surrounding community. Contributions may be made in the form of onetime gifts, planned gifts, or gifts and pledges payable over time for current or future needs.
