MISSION AND MINISTRY | As a Jesuit, Ignatian, and Marymount institution, Loyola Marymount University is grounded in and animated by a 500-year-old tradition: a way of understanding the world and human life articulated by St. Ignatius of Loyola and his earliest companions at the founding of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). The principles and practices of Ignatian spirituality and pedagogy shape everything we do at LMU as well as our vision of the education we provide.
Each year in November, the Loyola Marymount University community celebrates this identity in a special way during Ignatian Heritage Week, an opportunity to reflect together on our Ignatian identity: the values and ways of proceeding drawn from the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Society of Jesus he founded, and the principles and values of Ignatian spirituality and pedagogy that give shape and meaning to our mission.
Mission and Ministry invites the LMU community to join next week, Nov. 15-21, for one or more programs as we reflect on what our Ignatian identity means to each one of us at LMU – undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff members, alumni and friends. From community reflection to documentary screenings to talking together about the meaning of life over coffee, there’s something for everyone this week.
Ignatian Heritage Week is sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, Campus Ministry, the Division of Student Affairs, the Center for Service and Action, the Student Housing Office, Resident Ministry, and the Jesuit Community of LMU.
