While at CBU, Brother Dylan Perry was very involved with the Honors Program. “I spent a lot of time with other young people who were passionate about learning and justice; our discussions and action extended long after our classes were over.”

As a result, Brother Dylan was also part of a group that started a social justice advocacy group and the CBU Community Garden, and also served as a senator in the Student Government Association. After graduating in 2010, he further pursued his passion for service and social justice by serving as a Lasallian Volunteer in Philadelphia and then earned his master’s degree at the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock. He came back to the Lasallian family as the Associate Director of Lasallian Volunteers. It was during his time in this position, that he began his formation as a Brother.  

Brother Dylan currently serves the Lasallian Mission in a number of ways, primarily by teaching ninth-grade Scripture classes, 12th-grade Morality classes, and Philosophy classes for 11th and 12th grades at De La Salle High School in Minneapolis — where he also co-moderates the National Honor Society and the two-time State Champion Ethics Bowl team. A little closer to home, Brother Dylan is on the Board of Directors of Brother David Darst Center for Justice & Peace, Spirituality & Education in Chicago. And much further from home, he is on the planning commission for the International Young Brothers Assembly in Rome.

One of the most impactful parts of my time at CBU was the Honors Program. I was immediately welcomed into a supportive community in which I was encouraged to be creative and apply all of my learning outside of the classroom. The Honors Program community helped me to be the best student I could be, and the many lifelong friends that I have made still push each other today to be our best selves in service of the values that we acquired and sharpened at CBU.
