The Human Library brings together the Lehman College Community to enhance experiences of diversity and inclusion. Students share their own stories of inspiration and resilience to break down barriers of stigma, bias, and misunderstanding.
Lehman College is located on Bedford Park Boulevard West and Goulden Avenue in a residential area in the northwest Bronx, south of Van Cortlandt Park and west of the New York Botanical Garden-near the border of Westchester County. The 37-acre campus is situated between the Kingsbridge and Bedford Park neighborhoods, along the historic Jerome Park Reservoir. Lehman's neighbors along the reservoir include Bronx High School of Science, Walton High School, and DeWitt Clinton High School. The campus is easy to reach by car and by public transportation.
