La Salle University

4.2 out of 5 (10 ratings / 9 reviews) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
La Salle is a Lasallian Catholic university committed to the principle that all knowledge is practical and empowering, filled with the capacity to transform lives. Anchored in the living tradition of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and in association with a diverse and inclusive learning community, our mission is to educate the whole person by fostering a rigorous free search for truth. 

About

History

When the Brothers of the Christian Schools founded La Salle College in 1863, they looked to their founder and the universal patron saint of educators, for inspiration and guidance. Beginning with this act of faith, La Salle became the first institution of higher education in the world to bear the name of St. John Baptist de La Salle. 

Education

Those who accept the challenge of a Lasallian education seek not only to exercise the mind, but to inculcate a love of learning, creativity, a sense of self, and an ability to discern relationships and possibilities where none are obvious. Our love of teaching and learning is manifested in opportunities for students, faculty, administrators, and staff to become reflective, discerning persons. La Salle aspires to fully awaken and ripen our intellectual, spiritual, emotional, ethical, social, and physical capacities.

Research

In collaboration with the La Salle School of Business, the DLSI co-sponsors Research Methods Labs (RMLs) that highlight a quantitative or qualitative method. Research Methods Labs introduce (or refresh) key research methods not only to offer faculty, staff, and graduate students additional options for conducting their own research, but also to provide additional alternatives for our students in methods courses. RMLs are held 1-2 times per semester

Career

La Salle’s Career Center offers an array of career readiness services, programs, and resources to help you prepare for, and achieve, your goals whether they be graduate school, full-time employment, or long-term volunteer opportunities. Regardless of your major or year, our staff is ready to help you plan for “life beyond La Salle”. It’s never too early to start preparing!

La Salle university can offer a really good experience to their students because it cares for the integral education and the wellness of them. Also, in my own experience, I realized the university is always innovating to have a comparative advantage over the other colleges.

My experience at La Salle Chihuahua was simultáneous, at some points in the career we had excelent teachers and others not so good, but overall i tried to learn and extract the positive from all the courses and teachers. The university is missing a little innovation, technology wise. And now that i am about to graduate i feel the need to have a Masters so i can be more...
