The College Unit of the University of St. La Salle is a Catholic learning community inspired by St. John Baptist De La Salle and the human and Christian education of the young, especially the poor. Moved by the Spirit of Faith, Zeal for Service, and Communion in Mission, the higher education unit of La Salle Bacolod aims to form Christian men and women and accompany them to develop their full potential in becoming competent, confident, concerned and committed persons for social transformation.
The College aims to form students who are:
- able to think and express themselves clearly, critically and objectively, enabling them to excel in their chosen fields and to translate knowledge into something useful for society;
- emotionally mature, socially responsible, and especially sensitive to addressing the needs of the less fortunate particularly the youth at risk;
- rooted in their spiritual and moral values, living these out in their daily decisions and actions as responsible members of their workplace, their family, Church, community, and society; and
- secure in the richness of their Filipino cultural heritage but respectful of cultural diversity, making them true global citizens.
With a history spanning more than 300 years, the University of St. La Salle Bacolod belongs to the International Association of La Salle Universities, representative of more than 60 institutions of higher learning in the world as well as hundreds of thousands of students, professors, and staff.
