  • Lehman Students and Staff Raise Funds and Smiles at 2018 NYC Marathon— The 48th TCS New York City Marathon, held this year on Nov. 4 under clear skies and featuring more than 52,000 participants, was the perfect opportunity for a contingent from Lehman College to raise funds for student programs—and provide some much-needed encouragement during the race.

    Three runners affiliated with Lehman—Filex Mwake, a master’s degree student in the Early Childhood Education program; José “Ozzie” Osborne, an international aid volunteer who first met Mwake while working in Kenya with Lehman L.I.F.E. students a few years ago; and Stanley Bazile, the college’s dean of students—competed in the marathon with the goal of raising scholarship funds for the Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break Program in the Office of Community Engagement.

  • Grammy nominated musician Eddie Montalvo delivered a master class in playing the congas the old school way this afternoon at Lehman College. In between short sets, where he explained how to execute a "tumbao," he told amusing stories about learning how to play on NYC's streets in the 1950s and 60s and later on with orchestras. The self-taught conguero, who has played with everyone from Hector Lavoe to Johnny Pacheco, also shared valuable insight on being a professional musician then and now.

  • ICYMI: CUNY, SUNY, and the New York State Education Department have signed agreements with the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Education and Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology to develop academic exchange programs, teacher trainings, and collaborative research. The partnership comes just as Lehman College enters into discussions to establish a healthcare training pipeline with El Dominico Americano Instituto Cultural in Santo Domingo.

    "Brokered by Dominican-born Congressman Adriano Espaillat, the collaboration is expected to benefit more than 40,000 CUNY and SUNY students who are of Dominican descent."

  • In measuring the results of 34 healthy, college-aged men completing three different levels of weight-lifting exercise over eight weeks, Schoenfeld and his research associates in Lehman’s human performance laboratory discovered in their study that there was no discernable differences in muscle strength between the individuals who did the most (five “sets” or rounds of exercises per training session) versus those who did the least (one set per training session) exercise.

    The “less will do” conclusion of his study surprised even Schoenfeld, who noted the research carried an important caveat: the subjects completing the most weight-training exercises earned undeniably bigger muscles. But the findings, seemingly counterintuitive, were significant enough to land in The New York Times, as well an InStyle article and reporting by ABC News.

  • Lehman students took a literary approach to understanding #humanrights throughout history during a special event held in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Monday, December 10.

    The event was sponsored by the Center for Human Rights and Peace Studies, and included presentations by Professor Stacey Engels and student researchers in her fall 2018 English course. The class is a natural fit for Lehman, with the school’s history as the site of the first American meetings of the United Nations Security Council.

    The event provided students in the class with an opportunity to present their capstone research projects, which focused on topics ranging from prison education, to domestic and sexual violence, to community crime prevention. The celebration included a screening of archival photographs documenting the writing and signing of the declaration.

  • Next to the fear of heights, flying, and little critters that crawl, many people rank public speaking high on their list of phobias. Because of that fear, determined Lehman College students named it the number one thing they want to practice.

    The Herbert H. Lehman Center for Student Leadership Development (HHL) has introduced virtual reality training for public speaking, using a cutting-edge technology to help students prepare for those dreaded interactions. In a survey of students done by the center, public speaking came up at the top of the list for helpful skills students felt like they needed to learn in order to excel at school and in the job hunt.

    "Communication is the number one skill employers in all industries look for—both in writing and public speaking,” says Jane Cleland, director of Lehman’s Program for Professional Communications and English lecturer. “Anything that helps people build skills and confidence is a good thing, and these goggles are certain to do just that."

  • Lehman freshman Aminata Gueye earned an Honorable Mention in the 2018 Dr. K. York and M. Noelle Chynn CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest for her piece, titled “My Leaps of Faith Yesterday and Today.” The essay contest is intended to promote and stimulate thinking among CUNY students on topics related to ethics, morality, and virtuous behavior. In her essay, Gueye describes how her faith helped her and her brother and mother stay strong as they fled their home due to domestic abuse. As an adult, she turns to her faith for courage to live in a world that can be heavy with pain and injustice, yet light and still in its beauty. Here’s the link to her essay: https://tinyurl.com/yd24bb8a

  • Artist Aliza Nisenbaum delivered an inspiring talk on the relationship between muse and artist and the process for creating art during a recent visit to the Lehman College Art Gallery.

    Excerpt:

    "In an always fast-paced world, Nisenbaum is never in a rush to complete her works. Developing friendships with her subjects takes time, a labor of love that can literally take hours. Or as what happened with one family she once painted, six years.

    “I really like the way she talks to her subjects and how she built a relationship with them,” said Miguel Jimenez, a senior art major at Lehman. “Because of that relationship, it influences the work.”

    Every portrait has a story, Nisenbaum said. When she volunteered at the Immigrant Movement International — a resource center for immigrants — she taught her students English through feminist art history. It was there she saw how courageous many of them were, and some of those students even ultimately sat in for portraits."

  • Finding the right formula to increase on-time graduation rates has long been a quest for colleges, which is why the Robin Hood Foundation’s renewable $1.1 million grant to Lehman College for a promising new program is a big deal for the college and the 250 students that will benefit.

    The foundation awarded the money to the only senior college of The City University of New York in the Bronx to expand CUNY’s Accelerate, Complete, and Engage (ACE) program to Lehman. The program helps baccalaureate students complete their degrees in four years. The new program at Lehman also marks the first time transfer students with associate degrees have been allowed to participate in the ACE program.

    “Half of the students who attend Lehman come from families that make less than $30,000 a year. These students don’t have access to the ‘extras’ that so many people take for granted, the hidden advantages that make succeeding in college easier,” said Lehman College President José Luis Cruz. “But an education is the way to upward mobility for these students, so we’re thrilled that the Robin Hood Foundation is making it possible for more students to succeed.”

  • If you're worried that the community garden around the corner is going to bring on gentrification to your affordable neighborhood, new research says... maybe not.

    "Andrew Maroko, a professor at Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, and Juliana Maantay, a professor at Lehman College, sought to quantify the observation that the “greening” of derelict properties in poor neighborhoods often precedes the arrival of condos and cafes."

    “On the one hand, there were significant income increases in areas in close proximity to community gardens,” suggesting gentrification is taking place over time, they wrote. On the other hand, “proximity to community gardens is only one of many possible factors” leading to gentrification, and there’s also some evidence that “community gardens may in fact help to ameliorate, impede, or at least slow down the pernicious impacts of gentrification.”
