The iSTEM (Interdisciplinary Seaver Transition, Engagement and Mentoring) learning community hosts events and activities throughout the academic year for Seaver students. These events and activities connect students to academic and professional resources on and off campus, promote community engagement and showcase opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. 


iSTEM events are designed to help students make sense of their academic experiences through community building activities among science and engineering peers. Students gain a greater awareness of the interconnectedness of the STEM fields, the interdisciplinary approaches to global challenges and their real-world applications based on the scholarship of LMU faculty.

All students are automatically part of the iSTEM community and invited to college-wide events, including Seaver Spotlight in the fall semester and Seaver Day in the spring semester. There are no additional costs associated with this program.





  • Seaver Spotlight is the college’s signature speaker series that features distinguished leaders who share their experiences and career pathway as they seek to live a life of meaning and purpose.

"What I’ve gotten from LMU is a sense of community and family. It’s not just about learning in the classroom. It’s about how are you growing and learning as a person."

 "I really identify with the idea of educating the whole person. If I just concentrated on academics, I’d feel like I cheated myself out of so much."
