Lehman College

Welcome to RUF Lehman! Our desire for RUF at Lehman is that every student who comes in contact with us feels seen, heard, and understood, and experiences the love of Jesus. We also hope that through our leadership, we are able to create more black and brown leaders who go off and serve in their local churches and communities.
