About Lehman College
Lehman College, The City University of New York, is the only public senior liberal arts college in the Bronx, serving approximately 12,000 students. The mission of Lehman College, is to offer New York City and regional residents a liberal arts education and preparation for careers and advanced study. Lehman College students come from diverse racial and cultural communities in which they are often developing dual language capacities and through which they have developed significant life experience. It is our belief that this diversity is a strength that should be both the basis of and supported through their Liberal Arts and Teacher or Counselor Education coursework.
