Lasallian Advocacy Project 

The Honors Lasallian Advocacy Project exists to provide meaningful space for students to discover their purpose. Over the course of one semester, Honor students will have the opportunity to select a problem in our world today that they want to critically assess. As students look to explore their selected problem, each student will be guided to build solutions through the creation of a targeted goal and outcome that reflects one of our lasallian principles. 

At the end of the year, each Honor student will have the opportunity to present their advocacy project solutions with the CBU community at the Honors Lasallian Advocacy Colloquium where all students may compete to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. Selected winners will receive monetary awards towards their selected projects to implement their project solutions. Together and by association, the Honors Lasallian Advocacy Project will work to challenge and support all honors students to become Lasallian Leaders that play an active role in engaging real world problems with real solutions through our city and throughout the world today.
