November 8, 2012

Lasell College and Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) in Ireland have finalized a cross-institution partnership that allows students from both schools to expand their international experiences by traveling abroad and taking courses at each institution.

The partnership offers students in Business, Communication, Education, Graphic Design, Hospitality and Sport Management majors the chance to directly enroll in the Irish university, located in County Donegal, Ireland. The main campus is located in Letterkenny, while a secondary campus is located in Killybegs, where students studying Hospitality and Event Management can enroll. LYIT students will also have the opportunity to travel to Lasell for a semester of study abroad.

Officials from both schools signed documents this week making the partnership official.

"There has been a long-term effort for Letterkenny to build relationships with the Boston area. They were looking for connections with institutions of higher education [like Lasell]," said Lasell President Michael B. Alexander.

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.
