In October, six Saint Mary’s students connected with close to 300 fellow Lasallian undergraduate and graduate students and teachers at the second Latin American Lasallian Education Congress at De La Salle University in Bajío, Mexico. With the theme “The education we need for the world we want,” the conference aimed to promote knowledge, awareness and actions in the Lasallian educational service as an answer to the challenges of contemporary Latin American society. Talks and exhibits focused on Lasallian pedagogical thought; educational attention to vulnerable groups; education for sustainability; frameworks of coexistence in schools for tolerance and peace-building; and conscientious use of technologies in education.
