Lesley University engages students in transformative education through active learning, scholarly research, diverse forms of artistic expression, and the integration of rigorous academics with practical, professional experience, leading to meaningful careers and continuing lifelong learning.
Lesley prepares socially responsible graduates with the knowledge, skills, understanding, and ethical judgment to be catalysts shaping a more just, humane and sustainable world.
Threshold at Lesley University is a non-degree postsecondary program, in Cambridge MA, for young adults with diverse learning, developmental and intellectual disabilities. For more than 35 years, we’ve been helping students navigate life with confidence.
At Threshold, dorm living, student activities, and a curriculum focused on career training and independent living create a college experience that feels both authentic and supported. Students get support from caring faculty and staff at every step of their journey. We’re here for them during the two-year core program and after graduation through two programs that guide transition into the working world.
