For years leaders at the University of Mary, Bismarck, North Dakota, dreamed of building a hub where students, teachers, and community members could come together to learn, relax, eat and study. Finally, in 2017, the Lumen Vitae University Center became a reality. In the end, Innovative and HON’s ability to offer furniture solutions for every need and space in the center secured its partnership in the project.


In each distinct area of the center, we provided furniture solutions to turn every empty space into a comfortable, attractive and useful environment for students, faculty, and guests. Cozy lounge seating offers an inviting space for group meetings, solo study and catch-up sessions throughout common areas.

Now, with an environment that’s freshly furnished, inviting and full of flexible spaces for living and learning, the LVUC truly is the heart of University of Mary’s campus.
