President and Leadership

Looking Ahead - A Message from President Eric Turner

I'm excited for the 2023-24 academic year at Lasell, my first year as President at Lasell. These are some of our priorities this year to enhance our institutional success.

Academic Vision

If you want to know more, learn more, seek out knowledge and make a difference in your life and community – well, Lasell is the place to support that drive and provide you the education to meet your needs. Being a student is more then going from high school to college and Lasell is here to support all students no matter where you are in your journey.

Domestic and Global Partners

I plan to push us to continue to secure local and global partnerships – along with workforce development programs like our current surgical technology programs with local hospitals and information technology with Microsoft in Ireland. These partnerships ensure an additional revenue stream while leaning into our academic strengths and supporting our community. And partnering with other colleges, universities, and high school to offer early college and dual enrollment courses.

Building our community

While I’ve been with Lasell for some time now – this is my first year leading the University as president. I want and need to hear from you all. We are all working hard in our own areas and I want to remove silos and increase opportunities to hear directly from this community about ideas and suggestions to make Lasell even stronger for the next 172 years.

Thank you for all you do, every day. Together, you make Lasell the special place it is. It is my honor to serve as president and I look forward to working with you as we begin a new chapter in Lasell’s history.
