February 15, 2024

Lehman College and the US Department of Health and Human Services are proud to announce a partnership promoting the Pathways to Public Service Recruitment (PTPS) program.

This strategic collaboration that’s only 40 minutes from Harlem aims to create internships and career opportunities designed to empower and advance Lehman College students and alumni who are pursuing careers in public service. 

The three-year partnership will contribute to enriching the educational experience and equip students with the tools and resources needed for their personal and professional development. 

“The signing of this agreement is an important step in ensuring we provide our students access to career pathways that will propel them towards a fulfilling and rewarding profession,” said Dr. Fernando Delgado, Lehman College President “We are excited about the possibilities this partnership presents and the positive impact it will have on our students while fostering a more inclusive and diverse talent pool for the federal government.”

The College’s Career Exploration & Development Center will play a key role in implementing the initiative by overseeing:

  • Career fairs
  • Professional development workshops
  • Coaching services
  • Mentorships

“Bringing the Pathways to Public Service Program to Lehman College will build a sustainable and productive relationship by providing Lehman students with opportunities for internships and entry-level positions,” said Chief Operating Officer Lisa Lewis Person. “This agreement offers Lehman students access to the knowledge necessary to further the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ mission to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans by ensuring the provision of effective health and human services and promoting continuous progress in the scientific foundations of medicine, public health, and social services.”

The Pathways to Public Service Program

In partnership with other HHS agencies, in 2019, ONC initiated the Pathways to Public Service (PTPS) program to equip students of minority-serving institutions (MSIs) with the knowledge and skills needed to be viable candidates in their pursuit of careers in public service through internships and entry-level positions. 

Through virtual fairs and professional development workshops, students are educated on the mission of HHS, the Federal Government’s Pathways Programs, and the federal hiring process.
