Actions Taken

Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • Loyola Marymount University has a program known as the Intercultural Facilitator Program which has a goal to “develop a group of students, highly skilled in principles of facilitation, to effectively facilitate other students in critical cultural conversations.”
  • Loyola Marymount University has a student organization known as Together as Effective Accomplish Mobilizing (TEAM) which “provides a space for white people to critically engage in our four main objectives: utilizing our educational tools to analyze one’s own privilege in order to understand how systematic oppression is currently being enacted in everyday life, providing training on how to be effective accomplices to minoritized communities, engaging in coalition building throughout the LMU and Los Angeles community, and providing a safe space for self-care and team building.”
  • LMU’s Center for Urban Resilience Restorative Justice Project “offers culturally grounded ways to address conflict through restorative practices trainings, Restorative Conferencing facilitation services, and opportunities to collaborate.” The project also provides staff training and handles violations to the Student Conduct Code in partnership with LMU Restore.
  • LMU offers an implicit bias workshop.
Resources
  • The school has an Anti-Racism Project which “invites and challenges members of the LMU community to engage in a collective commitment to anti-racism at multiple levels (e.g., institution-wide, unit-level, individual) and through different modalities (e.g., dialogue, workshops, reading, personal and communal reflection, prayer, examination of data, etc.)”
Symbolic Actions
  • LMU offers “Cultural Consciousness Conversations” for faculty, staff, and administrators to “share your perspective and learn from others on issues such as bias, microaggressions, immigration, sexual orientation and gender identity, and power/privilege.”
