LMU History and Tradition

Loyola Marymount University has the distinct pleasure of being sponsored by several religious orders --the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (Marymount Sisters), the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange--and by many dedicated lay men and women. The members of the religious orders, together with their faculty, staff, and administrative colleagues, share a common dedication to academic excellence, spiritual growth, and social justice as hallmarks of a contemporary Catholic university.
