Mission of LGBTSS

The LGBT Student Services Office at LMU will:

  • Promote equality, visibility and inclusion of LGBT students within the LMU community.
  • Provide support for the LGBT student community and individual students.
  • Serve as the primary resource and support center for students of all orientations and gender identities by creating an inviting, safe, confidential and inclusionary atmosphere within the Office.
  • Provide all members of the University community with resources, education and information about sexual orientation and gender identity.
  • Engage the University community in regular dialogue about the intersection of sexual orientation and gender identity with issues of faith, religion and culture. Within these dialogues, the Office will place a particular emphasis on these intersections as they relate to the University ethos of Interculturalism and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
