This paper, prepared by John Wilcox the Vice President of Mission at Manhattan College, as his Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies final project, proposes to create an International Association of Lasallian Universities (IALU) faculty program.  John was an active participant in Collegium. The first IALU Leadership Program took place in 2007.

The purpose of this paper is:

To provide a context for the development of the Lasallian Education Movement composed of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and lay associates.

To understand this movement as a new direction within Roman Catholic higher education, a direction that will, in the spirit of De La Salle, be guided by Brothers and lay people who are committed Catholics and Christians, as well as those of other religious commitments or of humanistic commitment.

To be a community for those who see teaching as a calling or ministry, who listen with the ear of the heart to those who are far from salvation in this world [the most vulnerable and economically at risk] and in the next, and who wish to touch the minds and hearts of their students.

To assess the need to formalize Lasallian lay association that goes beyond programs such as the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies and the Lasallian Leadership Institute.
