What do you like about teaching at Lasell?
"Lasell’s crystal clear Connected Learning philosophy clearly tells me where we are heading and how to get there. It is very professional; truly it is. [There are] several nice things about Lasell, such as the great supportive faculty environment, etc., but what really struck me about Lasell, and what really distinguishes it from other schools is that it has such a great ‘theme’ or ‘slogan,’ which helps faculty/staff members clearly understand who we are, and what we do and will do, which further promotes and facilitates this great teaching and learning environment."

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
