President Daniel Lemons's message for the SCPS Catalog Fall 2019
Dear Lehman Community,
It is a pleasure and an honor to welcome you back to Lehman for the fall 2019 semester. The spring 2019 term ended with the largest number of graduating baccalaureate students in our College's history. The good news continued with the reaffirmation of Lehman's academic programs through our recent full reaccreditation by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education (MSCHE). We begin this academic term in a strong position, anticipating an even more noteworthy year.
The School of Continuing and Professional Studies with its wide array of high quality programs that are augmented by growing links to the other schools of the College, will continue to play a critical role as we add more achievements this year. As the Bronx's premier public educational institution, Lehman College is widely recognized for providing students with the tools necessary to position themselves competitively in the workforce, in New York and around the world.
Lehman College is now in its third year of pursuing a 90x30 initiative to double the number of degrees and high-quality professional certificates attained by the year 2030. The School of Continuing and Professional Studies is a key part of delivering on this promise, offering a wide array of skill-building professional certificates and licenses. I trust you will find that some of the options in this bulletin fit your needs, and will further your personal advancement and development.
I wish you a productive and successful fall semester in which you are engaged in important and exciting work.
All the best,
Jane MacKillop, Dean of School of Continuing and Professional Studies
