More on the Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture:
The Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture has been established at California Lutheran University as a forum for inquiry into questions of faith, learning, and vocation.  In particular, the Center will seek ways to establish new connections between the church, the academy, and the community, and to promote common reflection on what vocation means in our American culture and the broader global community.
