Greater Philadelphia Initiative
La Salle’s Philadelphia roots run deep—all the way back to 1863—and the University and the city are still strongly connected. The Greater Philadelphia Initiative encourages students and faculty to take advantage of all of the city’s rich educational, cultural, and historical resources and also engage in the life of the city by becoming more aware of the diversity and the needs in an urban environment.
Thanks to a partnership with more than 30 cultural and performing arts institutions in the city, the Greater Philadelphia Initiative is able to provide a “Cultural Passport” to each incoming freshman. Inside the passport are deeply discounted passes to museums, theaters, and other cultural venues.
