The Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies, a residential course of study meets for two weeks each summer for a three-year period. It is an intensive Lasallian formation and education program that studies the life, work, and spirituality of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and the origins of the Lasallian mission. Through analysis of the writings of De la Salle and an analysis of some modern educators, participants deepen their understanding of the Lasallian heritage and its influence on contemporary education.
