About the Collection
The Inclusive History and Images Project (IHIP), an important component of LMU’s ongoing university-wide anti-racism initiative, seeks to address important gaps in understanding our own institutional history by gathering stories and images from alumni and the greater LMU community to tell the full and inclusive LMU story.
Though the general history of Loyola University, Marymount College, Loyola Law School, and LMU is known, the community is keenly aware that there are stories that have not been documented, and experiences that have not been expressed. Too often these overlooked stories involve Black, Latino/a and Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, and differently embodied members of the LMU family. IHIP will endeavor to accumulate, archive, and amplify these stories to elevate awareness and promote proactive diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
This audio/visual archive serves as a living resource for scholars, researchers, and the greater public through the William H. Hannon Library’s University Archives. The Inclusive History and Images Project will serve as an educational incubator for current students with internships, academic credit, and opportunities to develop research and archiving skills.
