Description Lesley University

  • Established: 1909
  • Location: Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
  • Number of students: 8000
  • Language of instruction: English
  • Type: state.

Lesley University was founded in 1909 as a women's school, in which future kindergarten teachers were trained. The school became an institution in which Friedrich Frebel honed his concept of kindergartens as ways to support and care for mothers. In 1913, another area of training was added - the primary school teacher. In 1944, the school was transformed into a college, and in 1954 received the right to award academic degrees. Lesley University received the status of a higher educational institution in 2001.

The university has developed two areas of extracurricular activities: sports education and the development of leadership qualities. Management encourages students to hone leadership skills by working as resident assistants on the Residence Life Community Advisory Board and Advisory Board.

The team of the University of Leslie participates in the NCAA Division III in the areas of:

  • Baseball
  • Men's and women's basketball
  • Male and female cross country
  • Male and female football
  • Softball
  • Male and female tennis
  • Male and female volleyball.

All sports teams are named Lynx.

The Threshold program has been running on the basis of the educational institution for over 35 years: its essence is in obtaining professional skills by people with special needs of mental and mental development. The program is developed individually for each special student.
