What is Lasallian Education? 

Thursday, April 11, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. 

Brother Carlos Gomez, FSC, will speak about Lasallian higher education in the Union’s Dunleavy Room. When we frequently invoke Lasallian terminology—community, fraternal relationships, spirit of faith and zeal—we can take our pedagogical vision for granted.  This presentation invites us to pause and re-engage with what we are about in our educational ministries.  Starting from the Lasallian vision of education, the Catholic social teachings of the Church and the writings of Pope Francis this presentation will offer ten horizons “to focus our gaze and enrich our educational proposals” so the next generation will have reasons for faith and reasons to hope. The presentation benefits from a decade of fruitful international conversations on our educational task today, and tomorrow.
