Art + Design Institute
Southern Virginia University

LDS Environment

Since its founding in 1996, Southern Virginia University has been a gathering place for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and those who share LDS values. More than 9-in-10 Southern Virginia students identify as Latter-day Saints, and more than 1-in-3 students have served full-time missions for the Church.

The Art + Design Institute is committed to the University’s mission to gather LDS students and foster an inclusive atmosphere of kindness and respect. Here artists and designers can develop their talents without sacrificing their values or their faith.
