LMU’s Catholic identity may be strengthened in a number of ways. These include:
1. A strengthening of LMU’s mission statement to further elaborate on LMU’s “institutional commitment to Roman Catholicism.”
2. Development of policies which encourage lifestyles consistent with Catholic teaching, such as single sex student residences.
3. Increasing the number of Catholic faculty from 24% to at least 50%.
4. Increasing enrollment of Catholic students from 50% to at least 75%.
5. A commitment by theology professors to instruction which is faithful to the magisterium of the Church. This should include a requirement that professors who teach the theological disciplines obtain from the Archbishop of Los Angeles the mandatum as required by Ex Corde Ecclesiae and disclose this fact to students and their families.
6. Fostering of student organizations which promote adherence to Catholic moral teaching.
7. A strict policy and practice of not providing a platform for, or recognition of, those who promote the destruction of the unborn.
8. Selection of Board of Trustees, students, staff and especially faculty who seek to promote and support efforts to strengthen LMU’s Catholic identity and mission.
9. Making LMU a ‘safe place’ for Catholics who accept Catholic teaching.
10. A Bioethics Institute comprised of persons who fully understand and are committed to the Church’s teaching on the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
