Mission 101

A workshop series for new LMU staff members

Students linking arms in a circle

Want to learn more about LMU's mission and values?

Interested in meeting other new colleagues and forming relationships?

This four-part workshop series is designed specifically for new LMU staff members, in any area of the university and with any background. We'll learn a little bit about LMU and what it means to work here, get connected to more resources and programs across campus, and take plenty of time to build relationships and community with new and long-serving colleagues alike! 


Modules include:

Do You Speak Ignatian? | Ignatian vocab and values

Reflecting on Our Roots | Where we come from, where we’re going

A Faith that Does Justice | Reflecting on mission and action

Informed, Formed, Transformed| Care of the whole person: self and others


These workshops can be attended in any order; no prerequisites or preparation required. All are designed for new staff members (in their first year or so of service at LMU).

Lunch is always provided!

  • Who is Mission 101 for?

    All new staff members (Westchester, Playa Vista, and LMU Loyola Law School campuses) who are in their first 1-2 years of service. All are welcome, though, so if you're a longer serving staff member interested in joining us, please do!


    Are there any prerequisites?

    No! No previous experience, knowledge, or specific professional role or faith commitment is required.


    What can I expect?

    Each module will feature a brief presentation on a topic related to LMU's history, identity, and mission, followed by plenty of time for reflection and conversation on the theme of the workshop as it relates to our own personal and professional experience. Lunch is always provided, whether the workshops are held in person or remotely.


    What if I have more questions?

    Email Kat Brown, Director of Mission and Identity Programs, at katherine.brown@lmu.edu, and she will be glad to speak with you in more detail!
