Public Safety at Lehman College
Lehman’s Department of Public Safety supports the College's mission by helping to maintain a safe environment for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We aim to create a student-centered and learning-centered campus where students from all backgrounds feel welcome and able to achieve their educational goals.
The CUNY Alert system notifies CUNY employees, students and other registered users when a natural or man-made disaster strikes. Because CUNY Alert is moving to a new platform to improve service, we will be conducting a test of the CUNY Alert system for Lehman College Faculty, Staff and Students on June 18, 2018 at 11 a.m. using email and text alerts.
To ensure that you stay informed in an emergency, we ask that you update your contact information including your SMS / Text messaging preferences. If you are already in CUNYfirst, select Self Service in the CUNYfirst menu, then select Personal Information and the CUNY Alert Preferences link.
- To preserve a campus environment that is conducive to the pursuit of educational goals in support of the College’s mission.

- To support a campus culture that values the diverse backgrounds of all College constituencies.

The Department of Public Safety’s core values are harmonious with the College’s values, which include integrity, teamwork, dedication to excellence, leadership, service to the college community and respect for the individual. Our core values provide us with a means of not only guiding, but also evaluating our operations, our planning, and our vision for the future.
