  •  Preserving Campus History

    Monday, Aug. 1, 2011
    We tend to think about sustainability in terms of the present and the future. But how do we sustainably preserve the past? Although most Broncos are familiar with the Mission Church, many are unaware of the efforts that SCU takes to preserve its cultural and historical heritage. The efforts of the archaeological team, the de Saisset Museum, the California Legacy Project, and others on campus demonstrate the importance of preserving our diverse cultural heritage in a sustainable and engaging manner.
