Cory leads Lasallians in prayer for the nation
Former President Corazon Aquino will join our Lasallian community in praying for our nation. She will participate in our Eucharistic Celebration on December 12 (Tuesday),11:30 a.m. at the Most Blessed Sacrament Chapel.

After the Mass, there will be a short forum where Aquino will share with us her thoughts on the current national situation and entertain some questions.

During the mid-year planning workshop of DLSU-Manila administrators last December 4 at the Angelo King International Center, Brother Roly in his welcome remarks commended the growing research culture in campus. He said with these research efforts, La Salle has been receiving international attention and recognition from various organizations. He also mentioned that research counted a lot in improving DLSU-Manila’s record in the last Asiaweek survey.

Brother Roly updated the workshop participants on the Virtual University program, which would link La Salle to top universities in Asia. The initial plan is to develop an online course for a master’s degree in Southeast Asian Studies.

Meanwhile, he also took the initiative to invite Ateneo de Manila University, University of Santo Tomas, University of the Philippines, Mapua Institute of Technology, and STI College to help establish a virtual Philippine university online library.

As to DLSU-Manila’s social mission, Brother Roly reported the establishment of the Federation of Lasallian Institutions (FLI)—composed of all member institutions directly and indirectly managed by the De La Salle Brothers Philippines—which aims to concretize the plans that were created from the first Lasallian District Synod.

Another development in the year 2000 was DLSU-Manila’s laying the groundwork for the opening of De La Salle Catholic University of Manado, Indonesia. He announced that this university has open slots for faculty.

Brother Roly also reported the various physical developments in campus, such as the ongoing construction of the Yuchengco central administration building and the newly opened Brother Athanasius P.E. and Sports Complex.

At the same time, Brother Roly reminded the workshop participants of the challenges that they will face in the year ahead, especially with the country’s current political situation.
