The mission of the International Programs department is three-fold: 1. To recruit international students and provide rich multicultural student services; 2. To diversify LMU’s student population and, in turn; 3. To broaden the horizons of American students at LMU, both in and through their interactions with international students, and by increasing the number of Study Abroad and student exchange programs offered at the university. The goals of the International Programs department are consistent with the mission of the University at large. By supporting and expanding existing international programs, and developing future programs, International Programs helps to foster commitment to individual liberty, responsibility, and improvement; respect for citizenship; and recognition of the intrinsic value of high moral and ethical standards.
