Delta Kappa Alpha
As a National organization with over 75 years of history and alumni, members of DKA are connected to the top cinema students from top cinema schools at universities such as USC, NYU, UCLA, Chapman, UT Austin, LMU, Columbia University, and many others. The Theta Chapter was founded at Loyola Marymount University in 2013 and has quickly grown into one of the premiere organizations on campus. Our chapter has provided the film school at LMU with unique support by organizing film screenings, running professional speaker series, and contributing to the film productions. With alumni working at companies such as DreamWorks Animation and CAA, the Theta chapter has made significant strides in its growth and industry impact.

LMU SFTV Storytellers/Students of Color (SFTV-SCO)
LMU’s School of Film and Television Students of Color Organization (SFTV-SCO) dedicates itself to empowering and increasing visibility of students of color by creating career, networking, and social opportunities to help students of color better succeed in film school and in the entertainment industry at large.
We welcome all graduate, undergraduate, and International School of Film and Television students of color, including Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian, Black/African-American, and Latino/Hispanic. This student-led organization will utilize strategic solutions, including but not limited to: industry development and mentorship, outreach, special events, social media, and special training.
While academic and career-oriented success for students of color are our goals, SFTV-SCO-sponsored social activities will play equally important roles in fostering belonging among students in what can sometimes be an uncomfortable campus environment.
Student Leaders: Mallom Liggon, Tiffany Hikes, Emily Ordonez
Faculty Advisors: Michelle Amor Gillie and Marc Pitre
