The Urban Studies Society is established as an LMU student organization (1) to promote the academic interests of the LMU Urban Studies Program and its students, (2) to provide a forum for the discussion of issues related to modern urbanization and Urban Studies on the LMU campus, (3) to serve as a resource for students interested in career preparation in areas related to Urban Studies, (4) to serve as a mechanism for the promotion of community service by the Urban Studies Programs and its students in a manner consistent with the University goals, and (5) to function as a vehicle for the promotion of interaction between students majoring in, minoring in, interested in, and/or taking classes in Urban Studies.
As a student organization, the activities and events of the Urban Studies Society are up to the current students’ interests.
