The President of Loyola Marymount University is the chief administrator of the university. He and the board of trustees, the legal governing body of the University, govern the university. LMU’s president is responsible for articulating and advancing the distinctive nature, culture and heritage of LMU as a Catholic university. Loyola University of Los Angeles was the successor to St. Vincent's College, which had operated since 1865. In 1973, Loyola University officially merged with Marymount College to become Loyola Marymount University. Traditionally the president of LMU was a Jesuit. In 2010, David W. Burcham became the first lay president in the university's history.
