The De La Salle Medal Dinner raises essential, unrestricted income for the College, a critical factor in these challenging times. Funds are applied to a wide variety of needs, particularly student scholarships and financial aid, making a Manhattan College education accessible for more students.
The De La Salle Medal was established by Manhattan College in 1951 in honor of John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and one of the world’s great educators. The Order founded Manhattan College in 1853. Since 1977, the De La Salle Medal has been conferred annually by the College’s board of trustees to honor executives who exemplify the principles of excellence and corporate leadership.
