Charleston Southern University / Transform / Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership

Strength at the Center


By the NumbersThe Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership will anchor the heart of our campus and become the home of our University’s faith integration initiatives, and the primary resource for faculty development, community outreach and Christian service.

This beautifully designed and landscaped 26,500-square-foot facility will be located adjacent to the Strom Thurmond Center, directly across the Reflection Pond from the Science Building. Brick pavers encircling the Reflection Pond will lead to the CLB entrance.

It will be a state-of-the-art training facility for faculty, staff, and students. Individuals will be able to more fully develop their understanding and practice of a Christian worldview and intentional faith integration. As the Resource Center located within the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership is established, it will provide a library of Christian worldview materials and works of faith integration in the various disciplines. The Resource Center will also facilitate plans to establish a scholarly journal in the area of Christian leadership.

The Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership will house classrooms where participants will learn Christian concepts and hear leading voices of Christian thought. The lecture halls, classrooms, offices and seminar rooms will accommodate biblical worldview classes and other academic initiatives.

The Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership will contain resources for outside constituencies: church leaders, business professionals, community leaders and men and women from all walks of life. The Center will be a place of partnership and outreach featuring conferences, lecture series, seminars and a myriad of opportunities for campus and community learning and interaction. The Christian Leadership Building will help CSU to achieve its vision of national recognition for faith integration in learning, leading and serving.
