Community and Government Relations

Lasell College is proudly located in the historic village of Auburndale in Newton, Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1851, the college continues to contribute and engage the community through its positive impact in cultural life, community service, and the economy.

At Lasell, we are committed to establishing and enhancing relationships with area businesses, non-profits, community organizations, The City of Newton, and other government entities with the purpose of promoting co-beneficial partnerships and opportunities for student internships, service, and research.

State HouseOur goal is to maintain positive relationships between the college, our neighbors, and the greater Newton community. This is accomplished by fostering a spirit of honest and open communication, mutual understanding, and creative collaboration with the people whose neighborhood Lasell shares. Furthermore, we strive to inform the community about campus plans, events, as well as gather community feedback about upcoming projects and bring forward any concerns or suggestions to campus leadership.

The college has an office of Government and Community Relations to act as a liaison to our neighbors, the greater Newton Community, as well as state and federal officials. Our office also sends a Neighbor E-Newsletter to keep neighbors and other community members informed about happenings at the College and around Newton .
