LMU Welcomes Democratic Presidential Debate to Los Angeles

The Democratic National Committee announced today that Loyola Marymount University’s Gersten Pavilion will be the venue for the sixth Democratic presidential candidates’ debate on Dec. 19, 2019, co-hosted by PBS NewsHour and POLITICO.

LMU President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D., released the following statement:

“We welcome the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to campus, continuing LMU’s long-standing tradition of rigorous inquiry, debate, and civic engagement. As a nationally renowned, highly ranked university in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions, LMU is a destination for world leaders whose ideas confront humankind’s most challenging issues. Together, we seek to create the world we want to live in.”

As a leading intellectual center, LMU values diversity, a principle expressed through varying viewpoints. Our educational environment is enriched by a free exchange of ideas as LMU seeks to model a culture of inclusivity, honoring multiple perspectives and championing civil discourse, which is often missing in the current political climate.
