  •  Campus Heritage

    Friday, Apr. 3, 2015
    Every month, the Cultural Resources Management program will share their archaeological findings, connecting us with the natural and cultural history of Mission Santa Clara. Understanding the campus before it became the University we know today will serve educational and research purposes, as well as showcase the University's values in sustainable stewardship and community identity through a sense of place.

  •  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.
