Diversity at LCU
One of our core values at LCU is people. This means plain and simple: people matter. No matter your background or experiences, you will be welcomed at LCU. Each student can expect to be treated with respect, dignity, and care. In fact, our student body is very diverse, and we strive to celebrate the unique individuals that make up our community through events such as Black History Month, International Luncheon, and Taste of Culture. All of these events are ways to share the unique backgrounds of our students, faculty, and staff.
