2020-2021 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Academic Resources

While we value the intimate nature of the community we build with each incoming class, we are nevertheless committed to providing a network of academic resources whose quality is consistent with that of a much larger academic institution. Lesley students have access to the facilities of the University at-large as well as to the riches and resources just beyond our door. The position of our close-knit community at the heart of one of the world's most prestigious academic centers allows us to have the best of both worlds.

Lesley University Archives

The mission of the University Archives is to preserve the history of Lesley from its founding in 1909 to the present. Located in the Sherrill Library, the Archives collects Lesley’s historical documents and memorabilia and makes them available by appointment for research by the Lesley community and members of the public. Collections include manuscripts, photographs, memorabilia, and the papers of former faculty and administrators. Historic publications include Lesley course catalogs, handbooks, yearbooks and student newspapers. Visitors to the Archives receive assistance in finding and viewing materials, conducting research, and learning about the history of Lesley University. The Archives Web site offers information about collections and services, and features online exhibits chronicling Lesley's history (research.lesley.edu/archives).
