New Faculty Orientation
Welcome to the Lehman College New Faculty Orientation Page. We are very pleased that you are joining us at Lehman College. Our office responsibilites encompass faculty affairs - including the recruitment, retention and advancement of faculty - as well as faculty development in the areas of teaching, scholarship and service. This page has been designed as an initial road map to provide you with information and connections to make a great start at Lehman. Please take the time to find out about our campus and community resources and about your orientation program.
Meeting you all at the New Faculty Orientation Day on August 24, 2016 was a wonderful way to start the new academic year. We have some pictures of the activities (including the bus tour) in our gallery. Induction of new faculty continues now throughout the first year at Lehman. In addition to the departmental induction and ongoing support, we offer two programs to inform you about the College, its programs, your role as an active member of the faculty and to introduce you to the College leadership.

Dean’s Book Club
The Dean’s book club is a new initiative this year. The aim is to provide a forum to discuss issues in higher education with your Dean. The book we have chosen for this shared-read is “Educating a Diverse Nation. Lessons from minority serving institutions” by Clifton Conrad and Marybeth Gasman. If you want to get started read chapter four: Hispanic-Serving Institutions: Designing Pathways for Student Success.
Your Dean will contact you to set up a meeting time and place.
Our Beautiful Campus - Lehman College, CUNY
CUNY’s only senior college in the Bronx, Lehman College enrolls over 12,000 students and offers more than 90 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Lehman is home to 12 CUNY doctoral programs (most in conjunction with the CUNY Graduate Center) and has a long-standing collaboration with the New York Botanical Garden. Lehman is a Hispanic-Serving Institution where students speak 91 languages, 40 percent hold two passports, and all have a global outlook. In recent years our students have won Fulbrights, Soros Fellowships, and fellowships from the National Science Foundation and the Organization of American States.
In 2015 Washington Monthly selected Lehman as the No. 3 “Best Bang for the Buck” college in the Northeast. Its tree-lined, 37-acre campus once housed the United Nations Security Council, where in 1946, diplomats drafted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In recent years, Lehman has added to its historic campus with a number of new buildings including Science Hall, a $70 million, state-of-the-art research and teaching facility, and the $16 million all-digital Multimedia Center.
