An Important Message From the Dean.....
It has been an exciting year and semester at Lesley University. For some of our students, the spring break will be their first time back home in awhile. Whether you have seen them once or twice or many times, I know you will recognize how much they have grown intellectually and emotionally and how they are embracing the opportunity to be well educated. Our, yours and the university’s both, continual investment in their future is invaluable. Lesley University offers financial support to 96 percent of all undergraduate students. Families, federal financial aid, state aid, and generous donors, who share our values, support our investment in students. When students strive to achieve the highest level of ethics, rigor and distinction, they, too, are contributing to and investing in themselves—in the future of their families, the nation and the community of nations.
At Lesley University students are encouraged to learn, to cultivate active listening, reasoning and critical inquiry skills; to paint, draw, and reflect on the lives they imagine; to analyze the historical, socio-economic, political, and cultural forces connecting and reshaping our world. They are taught by talented, tireless and dedicated faculty and supported by a great staff.
Here is a glimpse of some of the programs, activities and opportunities offered your son or daughter by a Lesley University education in 2013-2014:
The annual Child Homelessness Conversation featured Nancy Rappaport and has featured Andrew Solomon and Jack Shonkoff.
World-renowned writers, leaders and teachers such as Aaron Smith, Bill Bryson, George Papandreou, Steve Wozniak and Billy Collins confer(red) with students.
The inaugural annual Emmanuel Levinas lecture featured Michelle Alexander’s exposition of the New Jim Crow in America.
The University offers 26 undergraduate majors—the arts, liberal arts, pre-professional and professional--across the College of Art and Design and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
We offer a three-year degree and a record of student success in the world of work and/or graduate school.
Lesley University offers hundreds of opportunities to learn in applied real-world settings.
Our leadership is committed to academic integrity, high quality teaching and values-based governance.
We have a remarkable first- to second-year retention rate of 84 percent.
We are devoted to a cadre of distinguished teacher education candidates.
I encourage you to offer as much support as you can to ensure that your son or daughter earns a Lesley University education. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the entire Lesley University community, warmest wishes from Lesley University.
