Newman, in association with Spillman Farmer Architects, designed the new Multi-Faith Center for Elon University. The center brings campus religions together, stimulates study of intellectual and spiritual traditions, and promotes greater understanding of world cultures they infuse. It includes main sacred and multi-use gathering spaces that open to each other, as well as a complement of teaching spaces, library, and faculty and administrative offices.

This facility incorporates a wide variety of information technology and multi-media systems, to build community and enhance comprehension through research, classroom, and performance applications.
