The Bronx Institute
The mission of the Bronx Institute at Lehman College is to foster faculty 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 contemporary educational, social, political, cultural, and economic challenges facing the Bronx community, in particular, and other urban areas at large. As a community resource, the Bronx Institute is committed to act in cooperation with other academic institutions, community groups, and organizations to develop joint projects, especially those that enrich the educational needs of all Bronx students. The vision of the Institute is to foster and promote equity and excellence in the education and learning of Bronx students in grades K-16 by involving administrators, teachers, parents, and the students themselves in high-quality programs that support and enhance the educational opportunities of the students.
