Mission Day

Mission Day at Loyola Marymount University



2019 Mission Day address from Dr. Julie Rubio

Since 2007, the LMU campus community has gathered each year to reflect upon our communal mission and identity through lectures, conversation, and/or workshops on a single theme. These annual gatherings are opportunities to think deeply and critically about what our mission means and how it relates to pressing issues of our time, both on and off-campus. Mission Day presenters and speakers have ranged from scientists to poets to academic leaders from across the United States.
