Jacques Marchand, general manager of LaSalle College, knows a good party when he sees one.
There he was, this winter day, in the mezzanine lobby of his college, tapping his toes to a disco beat and kibitzing with fashion marketing students decked out in pancake makeup and cat costumes, replete with tails. This is no stuffy administrator. Marchand prides himself on being accessible to the 2,500 full-time students who attend LaSalle, the largest private bilingual technical college in Canada. He can be seen strolling the hallways daily, exchanging pleasantries with students such as those participating in the one-day fashion show put on recently in conjunction with a local apparel manufacturer. The founder, who wanted to implement this new mix, was referred in the fall of 1979 to Marchand, then a 29-year-old consultant in management training at the Université de Montréal's business faculty, known as the École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC). He invited Marchand to a job interview, but the man who within a few years would become general manager and a driving expansionary force almost didn't make it to his first meeting. Marchand, by his own admission, is a "big space" kind of guy - "space" as in lots of elbow room, not the Star Trek variety. This was a boy who had spent his early childhood in the Saguenay region surrounded by blueberry bushes as far as the eye can see. When his family moved to Verchères on the South Shore in 1955, it was the vast, flat farmlands that caught his fancy. When they moved to a Laval bungalow in 1957, he fell in love with the "big fields." He felt ill at ease in the concrete jungle of a city. The reason he had enrolled at HEC for his MBA was because he loved Mount Royal, the incline that the Université de Montréal is built on. So there he was on that cool October day in 1979, standing in front of the old LaSalle College campus at 2014 Drummond St., debating with himself whether he should wend his way to the third floor of the decrepit-looking building for his interview. Something of a claustrophobe, he stood in front of the main entrance, undecided for 20 minutes. "I finally decided to go in," he recalled with a laugh during a recent interview. Within a short time after starting, Marchand had organized the mix of programs offered so that by 1985, helped by a good team of people and favourable government regulations, enrolment of full-time students had increased to 2,400 from 1,000. Marchand added night courses, attracting 600 more adult students who held down jobs during the day. Marchand kept his role as director-general of LaSalle College and became vice-president of LaSalle College Group, becoming Lefebvre's partner. Marchand remembers his first meetings with Lefebvre as a turning point for the organization. "These funds allow local fashion students to perfect their studies abroad and to then raise the level of expertise in Montreal," Marchand says proudly. Jacques Marchand knows a thing or two about staying on his toes. "We know we have to be efficient and profitable," he says, to generate the level of revenues needed to keep his school on the cutting edge in terms of the quality of its teachers, equipment and upkeep. LaSalle's general manager, Jacques Marchand, is surrounded by fashion marketing students decked out in flamboyant makeup following a fashion show at the college. "We do more than just give college courses," Marchand said. Apart from its teaching mandate, Marchand says LaSalle is proud to promote Montreal around the world as a centre of educational excellence and a peaceful haven from the urban violence which afflicts so many large cities. "We are a career college, but part of our mandate is to educate our students to develop roots in the community and to support good causes," he said. Among other fundraisers, LaSalle gets involved in the Easter Seal campaign and solicits on behalf of Ste. Justine Hospital. It organizes an annual fashion show to raise funds for the Farah Foundation for AIDS research. In fact, each department in the college chooses the charities it wishes to help. In addition to the social causes it espouses and its stimulating learning environment, Marchand summarizes the advantages of studying at LaSalle as follows: "Show me any public CEGEP where a student can phone the main number and get the GM on the line," Marchand said. "Here you can.

Jacques Marchand, general manager of LaSalle College, judges the value of a good education by his students' ability to land a job after graduation.
LaSalle College - the largest private bilingual technical college in Canada - prides itself on preparing its 4,000 full-time students for the job market. "We're not here just to educate the students," Marchand said in a recent interview. Accessibility is a recurrent theme in conversations with all members of the administration, starting with Marchand, who prides himself on being available to all his students as he strolls the hallways daily, exchanging pleasantries. Diane Groulx, who works in the hotel's human-resources department, agrees with Marchand that his graduates have more than just book knowledge. Marchand, then a 29-year-old consultant in management training at the Université de Montréal's business faculty, known as the École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC), joined the college in December 1979. Within a short time, Marchand had added courses such as hotel management, tourism, as well as fashion design, production and merchandizing. As of this year, LaSalle College Group offers complete diploma programs in the following fields: He wrote the advertising copy which appeared in newspapers and flyers himself. One of his earliest ads read: "When you specify Frosst for pharmaceuticals, you support Canadian industry and receive right quality for right prices." Marchand added night courses, attracting 600 more adult students who held down jobs during the day. Marchand kept his role as general manager of LaSalle College and became vice-president of LaSalle College Group, becoming Lefebvre's partner. "These funds allow local fashion students to perfect their studies abroad and to then raise the level of expertise in Montreal," Marchand says proudly. "We, at LaSalle, want to do our part to make Montreal an international capital of fashion." To offset the falling birthrate at home, Lefebvre and Marchand launched LaSalle College International, which, with the help of the Canadian International Development Agency, set up campuses abroad. Unlike public CEGEPs, this is a privately-run industry which knows that it has to stay on its toes to be "efficient and profitable," said Marchand. "We do more than just give college courses," Marchand said. Apart from its teaching mandate, Marchand says LaSalle is proud to promote Montreal around the world as a centre of educational excellence and a peaceful haven from the urban violence which afflicts so many large cities. "We're a career college, but part of our mandate is to develop roots in the community and to support good causes," he said. Among other fundraisers, LaSalle gets involved in the Easter Seal campaign and solicits on behalf of Ste. Justine Hospital. It organizes an annual fashion show to raise funds for the Farah Foundation for AIDS research. In fact, each department in the college chooses the charities it wishes to help. In addition to the social causes it espouses and its stimulating learning environment, Marchand summarizes the advantages of studying at LaSalle as follows: "When students study at LaSalle College, we take care of more than their education," Marchand said.
