Lasallian solidarity highlighted in Brother Roly’s Malaysian visit

Nations must be committed to build a new world order anchored on universal ethical values and norms and must work towards global cooperation and interdependence.

This was the message conveyed by De La Salle University System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC to the graduating students of De La Salle Institute (DLSI) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during their commencement exercises on September 21. He was invited by the school’s officials as the guest of honor. A De La Salle Fellowship and Graduation Dinner followed the graduation rites.

The event highlighted Lasallians’ solidarity and commitment to providing holistic education based on religio, mores, and cultura. In his speech, Brother Roly shared that DLSU-Manila remains a highly respected academic institution in the region because the faculty and administration work together to produce Lasallians who are not only globally competent and competitive but also imbued with spiritual values.

The Brother President added that Southeast Asian nations need to work interdependently with the rest of the world. To make interdependence a reality, he noted that all nations and their governments must commit to the basic ethical norms and “heed the universal call to be their brother’s keeper.”

In closing, Brother Roly urged the graduates to take the first step in bridging the widening gap between the rich and the poor.

DLSI, set up in 1994, is a tertiary education institution wholly owned and managed by the La Salle Brothers who have more than 300 years of experience in the field of education worldwide. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, DLSI offers an ambience of conducive learning, interaction with many industrial and business establishments, and easy access to public transportation and other facilities in the city.

The Institute now runs two schools, namely, The School of Liberal Arts and Humanities, and The School of Computer Science and Information Technology.

It has plans for another school soon—the School of Business and Management. Diploma graduates are able to transfer their credits to many universities in the US, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. The Psychology and Counseling Department offers a Graduate Diploma in Counseling leading to a Master in Counseling in collaboration with DLSU-Manila.

The alumni associations of Lasallian Schools throughout Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak, are now giving their full support to DLSI through their umbrella body, the Malaysian Federation of Lasalllian Associations. Prominent Lasallians and representatives of the La Salle Missionary Order in Malaysia comprise the permanent board, which was established to develop DLSI into a tertiary education institution comparable to the best in the region.
