The Lehigh community is devoted to creating a rich educational experience and committed to creating an environment where we all learn, work and live together, transcending racial, cultural and other boundaries. Students flourish in an academic environment where they can and do learn from their life experiences as well as from the diverse backgrounds and opinions of those around them. Every member of our community has a personal responsibility to acknowledge and practice the Principles of our Equitable Community.
This is a grassroots effort. We all have a responsibility to lead this charge, and it’s an opportunity we challenge you to accept. Submit ideas and offer solutions or volunteer to get involved with one of the many related organizations on campus. We all can take the lead in making sure that diversity and inclusiveness are part of the Lehigh fabric.
"Lehigh has a promising path ahead of us—a path on which diversity, inclusion and engagement are both milestone markers and measures of success. We each have a leadership role to play. It is up to every one of us—the university community, alumni and our Board of Trustees—to take the initiative and contribute what we can to make Lehigh an equitable and innovative community of learners.”
