The Office of Intercultural Affairs works in tandem with the Office of Mission and Ministry to ground its principles and practices in the Catholic identity of Loyola Marymount University (LMU) and the traditions of its sponsoring religious orders. As a unit integrated across LMU, the Office of Intercultural Affairs’ collaboration with faculty, staff and students increases student learning and citizenship outcomes that facilitate the development of men and women for others.
LMU understands and declares its purpose to be: the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice. The mission of Office of Intercultural Affairs aligns with LMU’s mission by serving as a focal point for the promotion of inclusive excellence throughout the campus community.
In an effort to help move LMU toward inclusive excellence, we use theoretically sound and evidence-based, faculty-, staff- and student-lead initiatives to educate and inform the campus community, reduce inequities in educational outcomes, expose students to inclusive curriculum and pedagogy, and sustain an environment wherein all constituents can thrive and succeed.
