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."
