List Of De La Salle University People

De La Salle University (Tagalog: Pamantasang De La Salle) (DLSU) is a private La Sallian university in Malate, Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1911 by De La Salle Brothers as the De La Salle College in Paco, Manila with Blimond Pierre serving as its first director. DLSU traces its founding to Manila Archbishop Jeremiah James Harty. He believed that the establishment of a La Salle school in Manila was instrumental in preempting the spread of Protestantism in the Philippines through the arrival of the Thomasites. His request would later be endorsed in 1907 by Pope Pius X. An envoy of La Sallian Brothers arrived in 1910.

The university started as a boys' elementary and high school. The high school and grade school departments were dissolved in 1968 and 1978 respectively. DLSU currently offers coeducational undergraduate and graduate degree programs through its seven colleges and one school specializing in varied disciplines, including business, engineering and liberal arts. DLSU, granted university status on February 1975, is the oldest constituent of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP), a network of 17 La Sallian institutions established in 2006 to replace the De La Salle University System.

People affiliated with De La Salle University include over 100,000 alumni, 888 faculty, honorary degree recipients and university administrators. Among them are National Artists of the Philippines, Ramon Magsaysay Awardees, ranking officials of the Catholic Church and the government of the Philippines, prominent business leaders, film and television actors, and Philippine Basketball Association athletes.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, salle, university and/or people:

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    I made a list of things I have
    to remember and a list
    of things I want to forget,
    but I see they are the same list.
    Linda Pastan (b. 1932)

    Green, green is El Aghir. It has a railway station,
    And the wealth of its soil has borne many another fruit:
    A mairie, a school and an elegant Salle de Fetes.
    Such blessings, as I remarked, in effect, to the waiter,
    Are added unto them that have plenty of water.
    Norman Cameron (b. 1905)

    Like dreaming, reading performs the prodigious task of carrying us off to other worlds. But reading is not dreaming because books, unlike dreams, are subject to our will: they envelop us in alternative realities only because we give them explicit permission to do so. Books are the dreams we would most like to have, and, like dreams, they have the power to change consciousness, turning sadness to laughter and anxious introspection to the relaxed contemplation of some other time and place.
    Victor Null, South African educator, psychologist. Lost in a Book: The Psychology of Reading for Pleasure, introduction, Yale University Press (1988)

    There are no new truths, but only truths that have not been recognized by those who have perceived them without noticing. A truth is something that everybody can be shown to know and to have known, as people say, all along.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
