Our Lehman L.I.F.E. volunteers set the tone for an evening of elegance and celebration Thursday, October 24, 2019 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Stop by to have your picture snapped by our very own paparazzi on the red carpet. Place a bid or two at our silent auction. Enjoy food and wine as we break fundraising records.

While this year is a change of season from our usual spring gala, we promise that it will be just as wonderful a night to remember! Thank you for your support of a program that has truly changed the lives of hundreds of students over the past thirteen years.

Lehman Scholars Seminar Program Design (LSP)
Lehman Scholars Seminar Program (LSP) design provides rewarding opportunities for full-time faculty to share special interests that may not fit in departmental course offerings. Engage with an exciting and responsive group of Lehman students who are among our very best students.

We are calling for proposals for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Please consider submitting a proposal to LSP Program Assistant Ms. Wanda Cortez at wanda.cortez@lehman.cuny.edu
