This year’s forum will place a special emphasis on:

Examining the issue of community from a multidisciplinary perspective including: Business, Education, Law, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Literature, Cultural Studies, Urban Planning, Political Science, Theology, Philosophy, History, The Arts and more.

Social Justice and Promoting Action. Students will be connected with a variety of opportunities to translate new insights into action. For example, community based organizations (local and national) will be invited to attend forum events and activities and to share internship, graduate training and career resources with our students focused on increasing their involvement with community organizing for social change, development, and service.

Collaboration and building the bridges of community between LMU and LA. Local and national groups and individuals will be invited to the forum as participants including local universities, community based organizations, professional organizations, civic and community groups.
