Led by a mission focused on social justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism, Loyola Marymount University is committed to the success of students, staff, and faculty from historically marginalized communities. One step in this mission is to increase access to the resources and programs that our BIPOC community members may connect with the most, in order to enhance their LMU experience.
On this page you will find specialized programs, student and employee affinity and networking groups, upcoming events, and community resources that centralize the Black community. Each focused initiative offers a space to build community connections, to advance career and educational opportunities, and to thrive at LMU.
