So What Exactly is the Lasallian Consortium?

Lasallian consortiumThe Lasallian Consortium was designed to continue the over three hundred year old practice of the Christian Brothers to prepare young people for leadership roles in a global society by offering courses that are both academically and culturally enriching through learning and caring for others in the Lasallian tradition.

Starting out as a novice program by offering one-week walking classroom trips to Rome, Italy and Madrid, Spain, numerous students and alumni discovered the importance and excitement of not only learning skills but also developing an intercultural perspective.

Christian Brothers University has been a member of the Lasallian International Programs Consortium, allowing students to participate in the multitude of programs offered. The Lasallian International Programs Consortium is a cooperative group composed of the seven United States Lasallian colleges and universities for the purpose of creating and managing high quality educational programs throughout the world for students and faculty of member institutions for semester study abroad opportunities.
