Brother Gerald Fitzgerald, F.S.C., MBA

Assistant Professor of Accounting

Why La Salle?

I had an outstanding experience here as a student in the late 1960’s; the faculty were all helpful and personal – they didn’t “Lord it over us” rather they assisted and guided with great advise.  When I had the offer to return on the faculty in 1978 I jumped at it immediately, my experience has been outstanding over all these years.  I try to implement what I picked up from the faculty in the ‘60s and I find others are doing the same – treating the students personally.
