AXIS: Journal of Lasallian Higher Education
AXIS is a peer-reviewed, open access academic journal, published twice annually. It is under the leadership of the six Lasallian institutions of higher education in the United States, Christian Brothers University, La Salle University, Lewis University, Manhattan College, Saint Mary’s College of California, and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, in collaboration with Christian Brothers Conference, the office for the Lasallian Region of North America.
Advancing Lasallian Research
AXIS: Journal of Lasallian Higher Education will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2024 and its transition to a new partnership. AXIS is a peer-reviewed, open access academic journal that shares original scholarly and creative works that contribute to collective knowledge of the Lasallian mission in higher education contexts.
The first issue of the online journal was published in 2009 as a grassroots initiative led by three Lasallian Partners at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Beginning with the 33rd issue, released in the fall of 2023, AXIS has transitioned from being a project of Saint Mary’s to being a partnership between the six Lasallian higher education institutions in the United States in collaboration with Christian Brothers Conference (CBC), the office for the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN).
The six Lasallian colleges and universities in the United States all actively support and contribute to AXIS. They also collaborate with more than 60 Lasallian colleges and universities around the world through their membership in the International Association of Lasallian Universities (IALU).
