De La Salle University System
De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) (incorporated as De La Salle Philippines, Inc) is a network of Seventeen (17) Lasallian Institutions in the Philippines. It was established in 2006 for the unified implementation of the Lasallian Mission, generate creative synergy, and promote the spirit of "One La Salle" among member institutions. De La Salle Philippines replaced the De La Salle University System which was established under the presidency of the late Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC in 1987 as a response to the rapid expansion of Lasallian schools nationwide.
The network was originally composed of sixteen District Schools. Two De La Salle Supervised Schools, Andres Soriano Memorial College located in Toledo City, Cebu and John Bosco College located in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur, were officially added to the list in 2006, becoming the 17th and 18th De La Salle District Schools respectively. In 2008, the De La Salle Professional Schools was re-integrated back to De La Salle University, bringing the number of District Schools down to seventeen. The District Schools provide a diverse range of education ranging from Basic Education up to Graduate Studies. It consists of five universities, six colleges (with five providing basic education), three basic education granting schools, and one stand-alone high school.
The network administration is composed of a National Mission Council (NMC) which includes eight De La Salle Brothers including the Brother Visitor and seven Lasallian Partners elected by corporate members; DLSP Corporate Members which includes all incumbent trustees of the District Schools as well as the Lasallian Educational Corporations; and the DLSP President which acts as the Chief Mission Officer and Chief Executive Officer of the National Mission Council.
In line with the Lasallian Mission, the network holds various projects that serve the poor, as well as to give help to the country. Among these include the One La Salle Scholarship Fund, which aims to support 20 percent of each District School's student population as full scholars by 2011 in time for the centenary of Lasallian presence in the Philippines.

Famous quotes containing the words system, university and/or salle:
“For us necessity is not as of old an image without us, with whom we can do warfare; it is a magic web woven through and through us, like that magnetic system of which modern science speaks, penetrating us with a network subtler than our subtlest nerves, yet bearing in it the central forces of the world.”
—Walter Pater (18391894)
“Poetry presents indivisible wholes of human consciousness, modified and ordered by the stringent requirements of form. Prose, aiming at a definite and concrete goal, generally suppresses everything inessential to its purpose; poetry, existing only to exhibit itself as an aesthetic object, aims only at completeness and perfection of form.”
—Richard Harter Fogle, U.S. critic, educator. The Imagery of Keats and Shelley, ch. 1, University of North Carolina Press (1949)
“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)
