About

Your Lesley story begins in Cambridge; one of the world's best college towns. A nexus of higher education, and a community dedicated to scholarship and social justice.

Working Here

Lesley is dedicated to creating an environment in which all employees enjoy their work and feel valued. We offer competitive salaries, benefits, and services, including opportunities for professional development. We are committed to equal opportunity and inclusion throughout the university. We welcome applicants of all races, cultures, gender, and sexual identities. And we work hard to ensure that the pool of candidates for each position is as diverse as possible.


Diversity Statement

At Lesley, we aim to develop as an institution whose continual pursuit of excellence is shaped and informed by a commitment to diversity throughout all levels and functions of the university. We aspire to create an inclusive community that affirms the identities of every individual and affords them dignity and respect, regardless of difference. As we work to fully bring this vision to life, we are committed to continually investing in and building our diversity infrastructure over time.

Our community is reflective of many perspectives and life experiences. Diversity in our community refers to social identities such as race, socio-economic status, ethnicity, indigenous background, immigration status, nationality, gender identity/expression, language, ability/disability, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, veteran status or membership in uniformed services, political views, age and physical appearance.

We aim to be a diverse community of students, faculty, staff and alumni that engage with one another across differences in meaningful conversation and use differences to strengthen, build and embolden a Lesley community of engaged global citizens.

We are committed to working inside and outside of the classroom to support this vision. We will create educational programs and experiences that recognize, value and engage with diverse perspectives that make up our community and the world around us.

Our aim is not only to make us a stronger community of learners, teachers and professionals, but also to enable our students to become highly effective leaders and professionals in their careers and their communities.
