     Our Mission and Vision

Professor Herminio Martinez explains the vision of The Bronx Institute at Lehman College as being, "to foster and promote equity and excellence in the education and learning of Bronx students K-20, by engaging parents, teachers, school leaders, college administrators, and community organizations in developing, supporting, and promoting high quality programs. Through collaborations with other academic institutions, community groups and organizations, The Bronx Institute’s programs will increase educational opportunities and positively impact the future of Bronx youth."

The mission of The Bronx Institute is to further research relevant to the improvement of education and the quality of life in The Bronx and to provide a forum to discuss, analyze, and identify potential solutions to the contemporary social, political, cultural, and economic challenges facing The Bronx community as well as other urban areas. Our efforts are focused primarily on providing services in three areas: youth development, professional development, and research and policy.
