ABSTRACT

The authors capture the themes and dynamic atmosphere of the Fourth Annual International Symposium on Lasallian Research in this brief summary. The overview begins with a description of the event purpose and participants; proceeds through an outline of program highlights including keynotes, presentations of research exemplars, and connections to thematic research priorities as they continue in development by the International Association of Lasallian Universities; and offer thematic reflections on the more than 30 workshop and roundtable opportunities through which assembled scholars could establish partnerships for future research.
