The Lehman College Adult Learning Center (ALC) is a teacher-led direct-service project of the Institute for Literacy Studies (ILS). Our shared mission—advancing urban education—has deep significance for the schools, colleges, and community-based settings in our home borough of the Bronx. Four interrelated core values inspire and infuse our work: commitments to human capacity, social justice, the power of democratic communities, and transformative work for all persons.
We provide thoughtful, innovative instruction, individualized counseling, and a nurturing environment for learners aged 16 and older. Students enter our program with the hope that the ALC’s key programs comprising free classes for Adult Basic Education (ABE), High School Equivalency (HSE) and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) including career and college readiness can provide them with a meaningful pathway toward qualitatively better lives and economic self-sufficiency. In turn, our classes embed adult learning in real-life contexts to ensure that everyone who comes through our door has the skills to not only get a foothold but compete in the modern workplace
