In August 2019, Saint Mary’s Press of Minnesota, Inc. filed a legal change of name to Lasallian Educational and Research Initiatives-a 501(c)3 corporation in the State of Minnesota. Under this new name and redefined statement of purpose, the organization was restructured to begin giving birth to new Lasallian expressions. The first such expression was the establishment of Springtide Research Institute, birthed July 1, 2019.
