This paper addresses the persistent questioning of the legitimacy of higher education within the Lasallian educational mission and discusses how our Lasallian history shows quite the contrary. This was originally the script for a presentation in March 2017 to the Regional Mission Council of the Lasallian Region of North American (RELAN). Later, it was revised and expanded for a presentation in January 2018 to the board of trustees of Saint Mary’s College of California prior to its preparation for publication here.
