Share Your Story

LMU’s Inclusive History and Images Project (IHIP), in cooperation with the university’s Anti-Racism Project, seeks to gather oral histories and artifacts from alumni to gain a deeper understanding of Loyola Marymount University. You are invited and encouraged to bring images to Alumni BBQ to be scanned or digitized that represent the diverse and often unrepresented experiences of our LMU community so they can be included in this important project. 

If you want to avoid bringing physical materials, are interested in submitting more the three LMU historical materials, or are not attending the Alumni BBQ, we invite you to digitize your submissions and submit them through the IHIP Intake Form
