Contributions from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends are critical to providing students with transformative experience at Loyola Marymount University. A gift of any amounts helps Loyola Marymount University maintain the caliber of its programming, events, services and scholarship opportunities. There is no lower-cost substitute for the type of teaching and learning that LMU is committed to delivering. Your support will make this possible.
Why Give to LMU Student Affairs
The Division of Student Affairs supports the Loyola Marymount University mission through programs and services designed to advance student learning. In partnership with our faculty colleagues, we strive to create a learning environment where this discovery occurs through a dynamic integration of a student's total college experience — inside and outside the classroom.
Giving to the Division of Student Affairs helps provide students with a complete and fulfilling LMU experience through:
- Events and activities that develop the whole person through the integration of mind, body and spirit.
- Organizations that encourage students to commit to service and justice.
- Communities that value diversity and interculturalism that develop global citizens.
- Services that inspire students to practice Ignatian values through reflection and discernment.
- Programs that instill in students the importance of living a life of purpose to meet the world's greatest need.
Areas of Need
Throughout the Division of Student Affairs, there are many programs or initiatives that your support would greatly impact. If you are looking to support our areas of greatest need, we have identified the five funding priorities below, or give to specific organization, program or team of your choice.
The Learning Community
The Learning Community (TLC) is committed to first-year African-American student success at Loyola Marymount University. The goals of this year-long program are to cultivate leaders, instill community consciousness and promote academic and co-curricular success at LMU.
Jewish Student Life
The award-winning Office of Jewish Student Life (JSL), under the direction of campus Rabbi Ilana Schachter, provides opportunities that create a community at LMU in which students can celebrate their Jewish identity. Recently recognized with the Campus Partner Award from Hillel International, JSL hosts an array of on-campus events and programs such as Shabbat dinners, High Holiday worship services, Jewish learning and cultural celebrations that are free and open to all students. Through generous support, JSL can continue to expand and thrive at LMU by building a committed staff and developing new ways to engage students in Jewish life both on and off campus.
Office for International Students & Scholars
The Office for International Students and Scholars serves as a resource to the University by ensuring regulatory compliance. OISS provides programs and services that support international students' and scholars' social, educational and professional success, thereby, creating an engaged global community.
