New 4-year strategic plan set for the University


DLSU President Br. Bernard Oca FSC unveiled a new set of strategic plans for the University for 2023-2027 as he welcomed the Lasallian community to the new academic year last September 6 at the Verdure, Henry Sy, Sr. Hall.

The University General Assembly featured a new format, with top administrators–from the Provost to the VPs for Research and Innovation, Lasallian Mission, External Relations and Internationalization, and Laguna Campus–presenting the highlights and achievements in their respective areas during the past academic year, 2022-2023.  

For his part, Br. Bernie highlighted the Golden Jubilee Celebration of the University Charter, happening from 2025 to 2026, with focus on three main goals: partners, knowledge ecosystem, and impact. 

Br. Bernie pointed out that the first goal is about making the members of the Lasallian community more Mission-focused and higher-performing, which will ultimately lead to higher levels of fulfillment. This goal covers greater accountability, higher drive for academic research, and improvement in support services. 

For the second goal, the University commits its contribution to the national knowledge ecosystem – wherein industry players will be tapped deliberately.  DLSU will offer valuable research outputs and services for businesses, educational policy-making, social impact, and efforts on SDG City. For the third goal, DLSU aims to be a global leader in impactful research. 

Br. Bernie ended his presentation with a message of hope, “Habang pinagmamasdan kong binubuo ang ating bagong Strategic Plan, di ko rin mapagkaila na tila di nalalayo ang ating mga pangarap. Lalo tuloy tumitindi ang aking paniniwala na gumagalaw ang Espiritu Santo sa ating mga indibidwal na saloobin at pinagsamang-gawa.”

Additionally, he underscored the shared mission of the members: “Halina’t ipagtibay natin ito, ipagpatuloy natin, nang buong pagtitiwala, pagkasigasig, at banal na pagsasama.”

After the President’s Address, a fireside chat dubbed as “Animo Chat” with Br. Bernie, University Fellow Dr. Allan B.I. Bernardo, and Department of Economics Chair Dr. Mariel Sauler was held to discuss the main features and next steps for the new strategic plan.
