The Lasallian Education Council (LEC) is an innovative structure for sharing the responsibility for the Lasallian mission among the De La Salle Christian Brothers (Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools) and Lasallian Partners in the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN), and on behalf of all those who participate in the mission. The diversity of Lasallians in the Region is reflected in the membership of the Council, which consists of 12-15 members and includes both Brothers and Partners.
Established by the Regional Conference of Christian Brothers (RCCB) in 2011, the LEC is responsible for the oversight of mission formation/education programs and the expansion of mission-related activities and ministries. It also serves as a platform for mission-related collaboration among the Districts and creates greater partnerships within and outside the Lasallian world to strengthen the legacy of Saint John Baptist de La Salle.
