faith and spiritual development are important to our students’ journeys in higher education, and we provide that. We require our students to take a religious studies course, not as a means of conforming people, but just to offer them another perspective and see if it’s something that resonates with them, personally. We accept people where they are, and we want to provide opportunities for our students to explore who they are, too.” PREFERRED VENDOR n Oakley Collier Architects Oakley Collier Architects (OCA), with offices in Raleigh and Rocky Mount, North Carolina, was established in 1988, by its partners and principals, Timothy Oakley and Ann Collier.
