Vision

FORMDEV is a growing community of Lasallian ambassadors for Christ who are ON FIRE for the spiritual salvation and formation of their handles.

Whereas the mission of FORMDEV was articulated early in its history and is not likely to change, a vision for FORMDEV was collaboratively developed only in 2011.

Mission

The College of Computer Studies (CCS) has a special program and community called FORMDEV (Formation and Development), the mission of which is to proclaim and demonstrate the Lasallian and Gospel values of faith, zeal, and love, especially for one’s community and for the poor.

A major component of the FORMDEV program is a 0.5-unit course, also called FORMDEV, offered to CCS freshmen. The goal of the FORMDEV course is two-pronged:

  • To introduce CCS freshmen to the life and values of the Founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, St. John Baptist de la Salle; and
  • To assist them in relating the life and values of St. La Salle to the life of Jesus and the values of God’s Kingdom, and to their own lives, values, and dreams.
