President and Leadership

Welcome to the Lasell University Community 

I have the honor and privilege to serve as the leader of this warm, caring community where we celebrate our victories and achievements, and come to each other’s aid in times of need or distress. I hope you will consider joining Lasell – whether as a student, employee, parent of a student, or volunteer. If you do, I believe you will find that Lasell can become Your Community for Life: a place where you are empowered to develop your whole self, to raise your own voice and be heard; a place to belong to a diverse group of people from all walks of life, across all ages, and to learn and grow from exposure to people different than yourself; a place to become the best person you can be.

Daily activity at Lasell is focused on teaching and learning, whether in the classroom, on the playing fields, in the residence halls, in virtual experiences, or in the dining hall. Students and faculty collaborate in studying and solving real life problems. We work together on projects that reach outside the classroom and into the world beyond, preparing you to launch your career, or to advance a career already underway.

Our course of study places an emphasis on multidisciplinary thinking, ethical reasoning and problem-solving, developing the skills and breadth of knowledge you need to succeed in an ever-changing world. Our students grow into competent critical thinkers, active global citizens, and skilled professionals in their chosen fields. For students in our master's programs, we offer an experiential approach to advanced training that works for both working professionals and for those looking to change careers.

Overriding it all is the umbrella of the community that instills the yearning for lifelong learning in all its members. You can be a part of this community. Here you can find the freedom and support to develop as a person ready to make your mark on the world. Once you commit to the Lasell Community, you become family. We will embrace you for the rest of your days. It will become Your Community – for Life.
