Yesterday, our team convened at Lehman College, where palpable excitement filled the air during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Everyone was thrilled to witness the realization of the remarkable Urbahn-designed building, a crucial asset in addressing the shortage of nursing professionals in NYC, especially in the Bronx.

We extend immense gratitude to DASNY for their excellent construction management, CUNY for driving the project, and Lehman for being a visionary leader in nursing education and research.
