A Little More Information

The Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies is an intensive Lasallian education and formation program that studies the life and work of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the origins of the Lasallian educational mission.

Through an examination of the writings of De La Salle and an analysis of some modern educators, participants develop a deeper understanding of the Lasallian heritage and its influence on contemporary education and spirituality.

The Buttimer Institute is designed to inspire participants to delve more thoroughly into the Lasallian founding story and discover the basis of their vocation as educators. The program also seeks to deepen the participants’ association for the Lasallian mission and provide skills to become catalysts in their own ministries. The Buttimer Institute is a three-year program. Courses are conducted for three consecutive summers, in two-week durations. Graduate credits are available.

Started in 1984, the Buttimer Institute is named in honor of Brother Charles Henry Buttimer (1909-1982), the first American Superior General of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (1966-1976).

    One of the very best opportunities for those associated with the Lasallian mission to come together and deepen their understanding of, and appreciation for, Lasallian history, pedagogy, and spirituality. This long-standing program has influenced more individuals world-wide than almost any other community-learning program in the United States. It continues to be a major influence in the development of a conscientious, committed, and community-minded set of Lasallian educators throughout our ministries.
