About Religion and Theology at La Salle University

The Religion and Theology major from La Salle University recognizes that religion is a dimension of the human experience that grows out of the fundamental human desire for meaning and is one of the most significant geopolitical and cultural forces in the 21st century.


Members of the Religion & Theology Department seek to embody the four commitments of a Lasallian education through the following values:

  • We practice curiosity by asking questions in order to better understand, focusing on what is in front of us when it comes to our students, maintaining active research agendas, and making creative contributions to our respective fields of study.
  • We practice empathy through listening and active presence with groups within and beyond our campus who do not yet feel at home in our University community.
  • We practice pluralism by creating spaces and events that cultivate religious diversity and multiculturalism, by using diverse methodological practices in our research and teaching, and by going out into the community to encounter and reflect on difference.
  • We use our imagination by thinking with our senses, going beyond the boundaries of the department to dream with others about what might be possible, fostering creativity on a shoestring budget, and designing aesthetic expressions of who we are and what we do.
  • We build community by providing a place of welcome and inclusion in classroom and departmental spaces, and cultivating relationships within and beyond the boundaries of the University.
