serve others

You have a gift that can be shared


We invite you to put your education to good use. How can your work at school uplift a person struggling with poverty? Or a family without a roof? Or a community without access to medical care? Or a church school in need of plans? Or a young person who has never known Jesus?

Below are some of our ministries we pursue through design education.



Design and build mobile medical or dental units using retrofitted shipping containers with solar panels. Ours are in communities in Africa underserved by medical care.


urban design

Work with communities around the world in need of urban design services. Our Urban Design Studio is nationally recognized for excellence in practice.



Join a short-term community project in places in need, such as Bolivia, Perú, or Haiti. We can put you to work, and you can pick up some practical skills.

Every year, our 5th year architecture students serve a community around the world. This work has been repeatedly recognized for excellence by the Congress for the New Urbanism and by the American Institute of Architects Michigan. Most projects have led to implementation.
