Only the best

Greg Farrington conducts the Marching 97.

Gregory Farrington's eight years as Lehigh University president have been a period marked by academic renaissance, community revitalization, campus improvements, and financial stability. As he prepares to officially step down as president and move into his new role as Distinguished University Service Professor, we asked six Lehigh leaders who have worked with him through the years to offer their perspectives on his legacy. In addition, we looked at how Farrington's own experiences traveling abroad have shaped his views on the importance of Lehigh's international presence. The picture that emerges is clear: Lehigh is a far better place today thanks to the time that Greg and Jean Farrington have been here.
