Historically, the Lasallian Catholic mission has responded to societal needs and provided education to marginalized individuals. Lasallian postsecondary institutions continue to support students, advocating for inclusion and equity. However, no formal guidance exists on how the Lasallian mission can further support the experience of students with disabilities within the higher education environment. As such, the exploration of Lasallian pedagogy and how it provides opportunities to meet the needs of students with disabilities is necessary.
