Diverse Faith Perspectives

LAPU’s commitment to Faith, Life, and Learning includes helping students learn to engage with diverse faith perspectives within the learning community. The university’s commitment starts with an enrollment policy that welcomes students of all religious backgrounds (or no religious background) with the goal of creating and establishing a culture that demonstrates respect, care, and compassion for all.
