About Lehman College of The City University of New York
About Lehman College, CUNY
Located in the storied and resilient borough of The Bronx, Lehman College reflects the rich diversity that characterizes CUNY and the City of New York. The College serves more than 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students across 140-degree programs, plus 13,000 students in certificate and workforce development programs. Over fifty percent of Lehman undergrads have household incomes of less than $30,000; 80 percent are students of color; and 45 percent speak a language other than English at home. Nearly seventy percent are female and the median age is 25. The National Bureau of Economic Research and the Equality of Opportunity Project recently ranked Lehman as third in the nation for its role in moving large numbers of low-income students into the middle class and beyond in a borough it previously called “among the worst counties in the U.S. in helping poor children up the income ladder.” Among Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), the American Council on Education (ACE) has ranked Lehman as No. 1 in the nation for upward mobility. We are also one of only four public colleges in the nation that belong in the top 25 of “low-debt/high-income schools.” Leh...man has set its sights on becoming the top contributor to educational attainment in the Bronx. We seek to double, from 45,000 to 90,000, the number of high quality degrees and credentials that Lehman students earn by 2030. To do so, we are relying on data analytics to inform student advising, strategically addressing bottlenecks, implementing course redesign using technology, implementing experiential learning projects, frictionless transfer pathways, and public-private partnerships, and leveraging operational efficiencies to expand access to services that promote mental health and wellness, and emergency grants and services to help deal with housing and food insecurity, both of which are growing challenges at Lehman and other campuses across the state and country.
