Positioning Statement

Positioning is the expression of a concept that can serve as the basis for developing a strong and distinctive identity for Lasell College. We continue to feel that our identity should be built upon the strength of our distinctive educational philosophy, which we call “Connected Learning.”

We have expressed this concept in various ways, including the phrases on this page.

What Distinctive Spot Can We Own in the Market?
     Where the Classroom is the Real World
     Experience Every Day
     Connected Learning

Lasell also expresses its position in sentences such as:
At Lasell we give our students the opportunity to practice and prepare for the real world through a project-based and problem-based approach to teaching, through exposure to diverse cultures and peoples, through the development of critical skills such as writing and speaking in front of groups and through confrontation with ethical and moral questions.
