About La Salle University

La Salle University is a Catholic university in the tradition of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. To a diverse community of learners, La Salle University offers a rigorous curriculum and co-curricular experiences designed to help students gain theoretical and practical knowledge, deepen their ethical sensibilities, and prepare for a lifetime of continuous learning, professional success, and dedicated service.

De La Salle is the founder of a congregation of laymen whose sole ministry is education. He was proclaimed a saint in the Catholic Church in 1900 and named the patron of teachers in 1950. He was raised in Reims, France, a son of a privileged family who gave up his wealth and status to live with the poor. During his life, he established a network of gratuitous schools for poor boys. His writings have influenced educational practice, school management, and teacher preparation for more than 300 years. The Lasallian educational network has grown from 23 schools in France at De La Salle’s death to more than 900 schools and 100 other ministries serving special populations in 82 countries throughout the world. These institutions range from pre-school, elementary, middle, and secondary schools, technical institutes, child care agencies, and 64 institutions offering advanced education including schools of medicine and law. Lasallian institutions are responsible for the education of approximately one million students annually. In the United States, there are 98 Lasallian ministries: 51 high schools, 24 elementary or middle schools, 15 centers for youth with special needs, and 7 colleges or universities. More than 80,000 lay partners join the Brothers in their work.

As a Catholic university rooted in the liberal arts tradition, La Salle challenges students to contemplate life’s ultimate questions as they develop their faith, engage in a free search for truth, and explore their full human potential. As a Lasallian university, named for St. John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers, La Salle promotes excellence in teaching and scholarship, demonstrates respect for each person, nurtures mentoring relationships, and encourages authentic community. As an urban university, La Salle invites students to enhance their academic experience by immersing themselves in the rich resources of Philadelphia and the region. All members of their community are called to maintain a heightened sensitivity to those marginalized within society as they practice civic engagement, provide leadership with a global perspective, and contribute to the common good.
