Mission, Vision & Values


Lehman College's School of Arts and Humanities mission is to make a significant contribution to the larger institutional mission to provide students with an excellent undergraduate and graduate liberal arts education because being broadly educated is a primary attribute of leading a successful life.


The school's vision is for the collective academic departments to offer outstanding quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs, minors, and courses in Africana Studies; Art; Dance and Theatre; English; History; Journalism and Communication; Languages and Literatures; Latin American, Latino, and Puerto Rican Studies; Music; and Philosophy.


We value instilling students with employer valued critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and collaboration skills within the context of our faculty designed degree programs, minors and courses.
