Lesley University — located in Cambridge, one of the most dynamic learning environments in the country — uniquely focuses on the human arts, with programs that live at the intersection of education, counseling, and the visual arts.
Lesley’s students study across four schools and colleges — a professionally-focused liberal arts college, an independent college of art and design, a graduate school of education, and a graduate school of social sciences—as well as in the Threshold Program, a residential program for students with a variety of learning differences.
We educate the people—the teachers, counselors, therapists, social workers, artists, policy makers, writers, and business leaders—who practice these arts, and act as catalysts for a more connected and just world.
