GET YOUR EVENT FEATURED IN THE 2018 MISSION MONTH!

While we live out the College Mission year-round, each April we celebrate Mission Month! 

Mission Month is an opportunity for us to call to mind aspects of our Lasallian core identity which inspire our College Mission and encourage our students to think, wonder, imagine, and to build a good life – a life of meaning and purpose.  During the month of April the Office of Mission highlights events that foster our Lasallian Hallmarks:

  • Excellence in teaching 
  • Respect for human dignity
  • Reflection on faith and its relation to reason
  • An emphasis on ethical conduct
  • Commitment to social justice

Why April? 

This is the month we commemorate the birth (April 30, 1651 in Reims, France) and death (April 7, 1719 in Rouen, France) of John Baptist de La Salle.  So, during April, Mission Month, we shine a light on the many good works that highlight the Lasallian Hallmarks which inspire our College Mission.
