General Information About CUNY Lehman College
Lehman College serves the Bronx and surrounding region as an intellectual, economic, and cultural center. Lehman College provides undergraduate and graduate studies in the liberal arts and sciences and professional education within a dynamic research environment, while embracing diversity and actively engaging students in their academic, personal, and professional development. Vision Lehman College has entered a new era in its history as an institution of higher education. Already known for its outstanding faculty, dedicated staff, superb library, art gallery, theaters, speech and hearing clinic, and athletic facilities, the College will now build a new state of the art, environmentally “green” science facility that will invigorate faculty and student research as well as prepare Lehman students for science-based careers. Supported by the University’s expanding technological resources, the College will promote creative teaching strategies, greater access to courses through online learning, off campus access to library resources and enhanced student services. The new Multi-Media Center will stimulate technological innovation in all areas of communications and the arts for both the College and the region. Lehman has always been a commuter campus that prides itself on its diversity and commitment to multicultural understanding. Now, the College looks forward to providing a residential experience to attract a wider range of students and lead to the development of new learning communities to enhance student success. Lehman College will prepare students to live and work in the global community through new interdisciplinary programs, such as environmental studies and international business, along with study abroad and experiential learning opportunities. The College’s geographic information systems and numerous partnerships with schools, hospitals, social service and governmental agencies, small businesses, major corporations, and cultural and scientific institutions will contribute to the economic development of the region. Service learning and internship opportunities will be further developed to foster the engaged citizenship and commitment to public service embodied in its namesake, Herbert H. Lehman. Recognized for small classes, close interaction between students and faculty, a successful Teacher Academy and Honors College, and a caring and supportive environment, Lehman College will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary in 2018 as the college of choice in the region, committed to preparing students for graduate studies, professional careers, and lifelong learning.
