The Center for Spirituality & Sustainability, located on the campus of SIUE, provides a venue to promote understanding and cooperation among diverse faith traditions along with education and dialogue about the challenges and responsibilities to preserve and sustain the earth and its inhabitants.
The Center's geodesic dome, a miniature earth, was designed by R. Buckminster Fuller in collaboration with his architectural partner, Shoji Sadao who designed the building that supports the dome.
The Center was designated as an Edwardsville Local Landmark by the Historic Preservation Commission and City Council of Edwardsville, IL in August of 2008.
The Center is available for Prayer, Worship and Spiritual Discussions of all faiths - Educational Events - Student Organizations and Volunteer Service - Memorial Services - Day Retreats and Meetings.
"To make the world work for 100 percent of humanity in the shortest possible time through
spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone".
R. Buckminster Fuller
