Lehman Responds to Election 2016

Many on our campuses have already expressed anxiety and fear as a result of this election, and the reports of bias crimes and intolerance are growing throughout the country. The College is addressing these feelings in a Town Hall held by the President on Monday, November 14th at 3:30 pm in Lovenger Theater. The Counseling Center and Student Affairs will be holding a Post-Election Debriefing, Thursday November 17th from 2-4pm. This will be a safe space to share, connect, and meditate. Refreshments will be served. If students have continued needs, please be aware of the following resources:
