Ethnic & Intercultural Services

Welcome incoming new lions! We are happy to have you join Loyola Marymount University's intercultural community family. We also welcome our returning students who are already part of our community. We hope that your summer was full of memorable events, and that you are refreshed and ready for an exciting school year.

The Ethnic and Intercultural Services Department (EIS) provides services and resources that promote the academic mission of this institution. We provide a supportive environment where individual growth and cultural expression is encouraged and academic excellence is expected. Each of you has embarked on a journey to become better educated citizens. We encourage you to take educational risks and sharpen your academic skills by becoming high achievers.

This is a community where, through your effort and commitment, your academic and professional dreams can come true. Opportunities for involvement are abundant at LMU and each semester is filled with new experiences of discovery and growth. We encourage you to develop positive relationships with your professors, become involved in campus life and student organizations, and support LMU athletics.

Please be sure to stop by the EIS suite, which is located in Malone 301. There are numerous resources and services available to you including a computer lab, cultural, intercultural, and interfaith programming and student organizations just to name a few!

We look forward to meeting each of you and are honored to help you achieve your personal and collegiate goals.
