Mexican studies at Lehman


Lehman College launched what university officials said was the first Mexican Studies Institute on the East Coast with a May 11 conference on health among Mexican immigrants in America.

Lehman President Ricardo Fernández said the college was eager to unveil the institute to the quarter of New York’s 350,000 Mexican population that lives in the Bronx. 

“Lehman College is proud to provide a home for this important CUNY initiative, which will focus on both academics and service, providing a hub for research and advocacy projects throughout the university and region,” Mr. Fernández said in a press release.
