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.

Paisano is an institutional inclusiveness and community engagement initiative. The initiative was named for the slang Spanish term for friend, paisano, which is also a regional term to describe the chaparral by ranchers and farmers, making the term appropriate for the LCU Chaparrals. The initiative began as an outreach to the emerging Latino community and first generation college students. LCU continues to see growth with both of those populations.
