About Us

LMU Study Abroad

The overarching mission of the LMU Study Abroad office is to transform our student participants by providing meaningful, culturally immersive, and academically sound experiences abroad.   In so doing, we strive for this transformation to take place in the following ways:

  1. Evolving the self: develop skills of intercultural competency, self-reliance, and independence in our students through reflective, culturally immersive and intellectually rigorous programming overseas.
  2. Engaging with the world: translate these skills into an understanding and constructive world-view that is employed by our students in an increasingly interconnected and diverse world.
  3. Enhancing the community: contribute to the international dialogue of any present or future community of which our students are members by infusing new academic, social and cultural perspectives gained on study abroad.
