Welcome to the Lehman College website.

For four decades, Lehman College has been providing students with a first-rate liberal arts education, as well as preparation for careers in teaching, business, social work, the health sciences and other areas. Our more than 360 full-time faculty members represent a broad spectrum of scholarship in over 30 fields and include seven who hold the title of Distinguished Professor, the highest rank attainable within CUNY. Our more than 63,000 alumni are the backbone of many industries and organizations and are making important contributions both professionally and within their communities in the New York region, across the nation and internationally.
More than 12,000 students are taking advantage of Lehman's diverse programs and courses and enjoying some of the finest academic and athletic facilities available in the New York area. These include a new speech and hearing clinic (which welcomes inquiries from community residents), state-of-the-art labs in biology, geographic information science and new media, and a world-class sports and recreation center. I invite you to visit Lehman in person, tour some of these facilities, and enjoy our 37-acre, tree-lined campus, which is also home to splendid examples of both Gothic and contemporary architecture.
We welcome your continued interest in the people and programs of Lehman College.
