Registration is now open for the fifth annual International Symposium on Lasallian Research, which will take place September 25-27, 2016, on the Twin Cities campus of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
The symposium began in 2012 as a way to support the development of Lasallian scholars. It began with a focus on Lasallian research, and has since expanded to highlight how Lasallian education has an impact on areas of research outside of the mission itself. The topics mirror the priorities of the International Association of Lasallian Universities (IALU), including learning innovations; food, nutrition and health; and environmental sustainability.
The 2016 keynote speakers include:
