Overview:Loyola Marymount University (LMU) is comprised of a main campus in a dramatic setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Frank Gehry designed law school in downtown Los Angeles. Established in 1911 in the Catholic intellectual tradition, and shaped by the commitments of the University’s sponsoring religious orders, the Society of Jesus and the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, LMU offers a diverse student body an education that springs from the core of its Catholic identity and mission: the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice.
LMU is the most ethnically diverse of the nation’s 28 Jesuit colleges and universities and the five Marymount institutions. It serves approximately 2500 graduate and law students and about 5500 undergraduate students, making it the largest Catholic university on the West Coast. LMU engages with the most ethnically and religiously diverse city in the nation, Los Angeles.
By intention and philosophy, we invite men and women diverse in talents, interests, and cultural backgrounds to enrich our educational community and advance our mission.
