Loyola Marymount University
LMU became a Fair Trade University in February 2014. We benefit from our location in Los Angeles, a dynamic city that brings into sharp focus the issues of our time and provides an ideal context for study, research, creative work, and active engagement.
Our Mission Statement is:
The encouragement of learning;
The education of the whole person;
The service of faith and the promotion of justice.
Our Jesuit values correspond well with the principles of Fair Trade and we will continue to expand upon this achievement as a Fair Trade University.
