Welcome to the home of Academic Affairs at
La Salle University!

This is an exciting time in the life of the University.

After celebrating our sesquicentennial anniversary last year, the University is poised to begin the next 150 years of its history.

We begin by preparing for the Middle States reaccrediting process with the launching of a self-study that will eventually lead to a new strategic plan for the University. As this plan unfolds, La Salle will undoubtedly be presented with the challenge of meeting the needs of "post-traditional" learners, individuals aged 25 and older, whose learning requirements and goals include degree completion, graduate education, and professional retraining, and individuals transitioning from the military.

Even as we grow and expand into new areas, our traditional programs remain strong. The natural sciences, nursing and health sciences programs are flourishing in new facilities and are employing state of the art technologies. The promise of a new core curriculum is reinvigorating the Humanities and Social Sciences. The School of Business is the focus of our next major building initiative and will continue to provide the local and national business community with skilled leaders, affirming our commitment that "La Salle Means Business."

As you can see, it is an exciting time to be a part of the La Salle community. I invite you to join us in exploring the possibilities.
