Research Policies Preparation Team


As implementation of the Lasallian Regional Education Project for Latin America (PERLA) continues, there is increasing need to arrive at a shared understanding of the nature of research and to clarify the role of the region’s Lasallian Institutions of Higher Learning relative to the research needs of the district. The Research Policies Preparation Team of RELAL has discerned common research priorities and developed this policy to position the processes by which knowledge is generated, appropriated and applied, in the context of a commitment to use such knowledge to improve social equity and to advance human rights, in accord with the Lasallian educational mission.
