Vision and Goals

The LMU TRHT Center Alliance works within two of the TRHT Framework’s foundational elements of Narrative Change and Racial Healing and Relationship Building. With an emphasis on the TRHT pillar of Separation, this work focuses on developing an antiracist, inclusive climate and culture with practices to reduce racial disparities in higher education on campus as well as to increase access to educational experiences at and through LMU for underserved populations in the Los Angeles region and beyond.
