I. A. President's Welcome

Dear Student,

All of us at La Salle—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—are happy to have you as a member of our dynamic educational community. You will find in the La Salle community a deep respect for each individual; it’s a core value that has been passed down for over 300 years from Saint John Baptist de La Salle, who founded the Christian Brothers in 17th-century France.

Because we care about you as a person, the University’s environment is designed to engage you in your own education, not only in the classroom but also in the wider La Salle world of clubs, organizations, sports, internships, community service, and your exploration of the city of Philadelphia.

You will find a multitude of opportunities to participate in the life of La Salle, to develop your existing talents, and perhaps to discover new ones that were just waiting for the right opportunity to develop.

We feel confident that with your active involvement you will—as our graduates have told us—have the skills to make a positive impact on the social, political, professional, and moral challenges of contemporary society.

This handbook is a tool to help you connect and grow with the La Salle community. Keep it accessible, and use all the resources available to you.

With all best wishes and prayers as a member of our Lasallian community,

Michael McGinniss
Michael J. McGinniss, F.S.C.

I. B. Division of Student Affairs Leadership Team Welcome

Division of Student Affairs
Leadership Team

Dear Lasallian,

No factor plays a stronger role in student learning than the active involvement of the learner in the educational enterprise. A student’s surest routes to achieving active involvement flow from the establishment and maintenance of strong, lasting, and positive associations with members of the faculty, staff, and administration and with fellow students.

This book is your guide to establishing those associations.

We believe you will find in our Lasallian community, as we have, individuals and groups from and with whom you will actively learn and whose learning you will enhance, as well. We welcome you, we look forward to many years of association, and we ask God and St. John Baptist de La Salle to bless and guide you and all in our learning community.

Best regards, Moore, Wendell, Allen, Neubauer, Hershberger, Kinzler.
