vision for wellness

We see architecture as a caring profession.


Architecture and interior design are about helping people to live well. The way we build impacts our health and the way we live. Great interiors, buildings and neighborhoods promote natural light, fresh air, active lifestyles, non-toxic materials, contact with nature, strong and inclusive social bonds, environmental care, sustainable finances, and beauty and harmony that point to a loving Creator.

Wellness is what we do - and seek to do better. Our world is in need of architects and interior designers who engage in health ministry by design.

Here is our vision for how you can prepare for this ministry:

Advance health care

Health care delivery around the world cries out for better design. Help us to advance improved health care by design, especially in places of need.

The true object of education is to restore the image of God in the soul.
— Ellen G. White, Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 595

The Seventh-day Adventist health message uniquely positions us to live out a caring profession. Because of this, the School of Architecture & Interior Design will soon join the School of Health Professions to form the new College of Health & Human Services.
