About Us

Mission and Ministry shares the riches of LMU’s spiritual, intellectual, and pedagogical heritage with the university community. An organizational unit within the President’s Division, Mission and Ministry consists of the Center for Mission and Identity, the Academy of Catholic Thought and ImaginationCampus Ministry, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality, and the Center for Religion and Spirituality. These offices work with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and university leadership to promote an informed and vibrant understanding of LMU's distinctive character as a Catholic, Jesuit, and Marymount university.

In partnership with the Mission Leadership Council, Mission and Ministry also collaborates with numerous partners across the university and with academic and religious institutions which support and inform our Catholic, Jesuit, and Marymount mission.
