Why La Salle?

La Salle offers an excellent collaborative environment for learning. Teaching is at the “heart of the university” and shapes the experiences of our students and also the conversations that are regularly shared with colleagues.  A mission which emphasizes teaching along with core values that focus upon service were factors which influenced my decision to teach at La Salle University.
