LMU Ranked Among Top Schools for Students’ Commitment to Service Work

Loyola Marymount University ranks among the nation’s top 20 schools for “Students Most Engaged in Community Service,” according to the Princeton Review’s 2017 guide to The Best 381 Colleges.

LMU’s No. 12 rank in the newly released guide underscores the student body’s commitment to service and justice; LMU students typically log more than 200,000 volunteer hours annually at local, domestic and international nonprofits, including medical facilities, after-school programs, homeless shelters, refugee centers, legal aid clinics and other organizations.

“The Center for Service and Action encourages students to go beyond the campus to learn more about the issues that face people who live in the Greater Los Angeles area. Through service and accompaniment, LMU students learn first-hand about the struggles so many neighborhoods face,” Center Director Pam Rector said. “Through these connections, students understand more about the needs of the people and are encouraged to work with community members to create a more just world.”

LMU’s community-based learning courses encourage students to deepen their engagement in academic coursework through related service opportunities. The university offers 17 domestic and international immersion trips through its Alternative Break and Ignacio Companion programs.

The Princeton Review surveyed 143,000 students from colleges across the country to determine how schools fared in categories such as academics, quality of life and extra-curricular activities including community service.
