Honors and Awards

Edith Lesley Wolfard Award

The Edith Lesley Wolfard Award is named for the founder of Lesley College and is chosen by a vote of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences faculty and administrators. This award is given to a graduating senior who has achieved academic excellence and has consistently demonstrated qualities of leadership inside and beyond the Lesley community. The award recipient has exhibited a commitment to lifelong learning and professional excellence and the promise of a future best exemplifying the Lesley ideal.

Luke Baldwin Award

The Luke Baldwin Award was established in memory of Dr. Luke Baldwin who during his 15 years at Lesley served as an associate professor, associate dean for academic affairs, and provost. Luke came to Lesley as a faculty member in the Adult Baccalaureate program and was an advocate for the adult learner throughout his career. Lesley is proud to offer the Luke Baldwin Award each year to an adult student who has taken the risk to return to college to live Luke’s ideal of lifelong learning and continued service to the community.

Dean's List

Each semester, full-time students who complete all attempted semester hours and who attain a semester average of 3.6 or more are eligible for the Dean's List. (Incomplete grades are not permitted) Freshmen and sophomores must carry a minimum of nine credits in letter grades, and juniors and seniors, who are not in their placement semester, must also carry a minimum of nine credits in letter grades.

In the semester when seniors and juniors are in placement — and in the case when their placement does not receive a letter grade — they must carry a minimum of 3 credits in letter grades, attain a PASS in their placement and achieve a 3.6 cumulative GPA.
