President and Leadership

Michael Alexander

Welcome to Lasell University! 
Here, students and faculty are enthusiastic partners in a powerful learning and teaching experience. Together we strengthen the University's commitment to vibrant, meaningful scholarship that reaches beyond classroom walls and into the real world. It is here where students begin their Pursuit of Great and learn the value of becoming lifelong learners.

For students who earn their baccalaureate degrees from Lasell, our Core Curriculum guides learning across all majors within Lasell's distinctive Connected Learning environment. With an emphasis on multidisciplinary thinking, ethical reasoning and problem-solving, our Core provides the skills and breadth of knowledge students need to succeed in an ever-changing world. As a result, 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. Our online and blended programs provide a high quality experience at an affordable cost.

We believe our educational philosophy is what distinguishes Lasell among other small universities and colleges. It is this distinction that brings students here to begin their journey to Great - making new discoveries, gaining new perspectives and becoming more passionate and purposeful along the way.
