Building Success through Partnerships

Lassonde started with a pre-existing base of world-class researchers and unique programs that gave our School a solid foundation. With tremendous growth of the School came a variety of new programs, innovative structures, and supports as well as new faculty.

The combination of a mature base, new structures, programs, opportunities, and people have resulted in an innovative School that has an outsized impact for our age. Our academics are educating learners in physical and virtual classrooms, as well as sharing knowledge with the general public through research reports in both academic journals and mainstream news.

Faculty and researchers engage with learners and teach in different ways that resonate with their target audiences. Their contributions as educators will be recognized and valued for the difference they make to our learners, community, and society.

As the School continues to grow and mature in its capacity to deliver world-leading research, and leadership in educational program models in experiential and work integrated learning, our success has been, and will continue to be, achieved by our valued partnerships.

The expansion of the School and its partnerships has been the formula for Lassonde building a strong reputation and emerging as one to watch in the rankings. We will continue to work together with our partners while proudly sharing and celebrating our collective success. Our local and global community will continue to expand and grow, attracting new partners unified in realizing our School’s vision.
