Lehigh changes leaders

Kevin Clayton and his wife, Lisa A. Clayton, relax on Lehigh’s Leadership Plaza.

The following is a message from Kevin Clayton ’84 ’13P, Lehigh’s Interim President:

Dear Members of the Lehigh Community:

It is with great excitement that I write to you today, my first day as Interim President of Lehigh University.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve this wonderful university and will work tirelessly during my tenure to make the transition for the 14th President seamless. I look forward to joining all in the Lehigh family in welcoming and embracing our next President as we move toward our Sesquicentennial and beyond.

I want to thank Alice Gast for her eight years of dedicated service. On behalf of our students, faculty, staff and alumni, I wish her much success at Imperial College London.

Please know that my door is always open. You may also contact me by calling the office at (610) 758-3156 or writing to me at pres@lehigh.edu.

Lehigh is a special place. I am honored to have been called upon to serve our university in this capacity. I look forward to working together toward a successful academic year and especially to meeting you on campus. Together, I wish all of us the best for a productive year. Go Lehigh!
