as those of you who know as well can
attest the Lasell community does not stand still. We are forever in motion,
embracing new opportunities. Constantly growing and changing to meet new
challenges. Today we make an historic announcement Lasell College, from this
day forward, is Lasell University. The college that connects students with
professional outcomes is becoming the university that creates even more
opportunities. We’ve opened new schools and built new facilities, we’ve announced
new partnerships, and created a new graduate and undergraduate program. We’ve become an official Google partner and fostered intergenerational learning
through Lasell village. We’ve doubled down on our ability to prepare students
to thrive in the 21st century. And so the college that has always pursued
greatness is now the University helping students advance to their own personal
definition of greatness. This latest chapter in our history is
not a destination or an endpoint it’s part of an ongoing evolution that
started in 1851 and continues to this day. In this unprecedented time of change
Lasell is flexed to meet profound new challenges for higher education and
those who seek its benefits. Finally today is a day that wouldn’t be possible
without the support and commitment of all the people that make Lasell a
distinctive and special institution. Our students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees,
Lasell village residents, and the Newton community. We’re taking a bold
step forward. We are Lasell University. Forever forward.
