DEAN'S NOTE

Dear Lehigh Engineers,

Dean Stephen P. DeWeerth

It is a great honor to be the new Dean of Lehigh’s P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. It has been quite a whirlwind since my appointment was announced earlier this Summer. Nonetheless, I have had the opportunity to experience the achievements, enthusiasm, and potential that define Lehigh and our College. It is clear to me that Lehigh is an outstanding university that embodies innovation in undergraduate and graduate education, excellence in research and scholarship, and a true commitment to effecting positive change in our community and our world.

I’ve been learning my way around campus over the recent weeks, meeting members of our faculty and staff, students, alumni and friends of the Rossin College, and even members of the 'South B’ community. I am struck by the sense of collective pride and enthusiasm for Lehigh and particularly for Lehigh engineering. I look forward to the University events this Fall and to meeting many more of you: opportunities to learn even more about our community and the people that make it great.

Lehigh’s contributions to engineering education and research are truly impressive. Our interdisciplinary culture eliminates traditional boundaries, unleashing the power of interdisciplinary thinking to transform the learning environments that we create for our students and to address the research grand challenges that face the future of society.

It is clear that opportunities abound here for our outstanding faculty, staff, and students to effect lasting change through their endeavors. Examples of this are evident in our Web site, our social media channels, and throughout this newsletter. I invite you to read on to learn more.

Together, we are building upon this solid foundation to maximize our potential for excellence, innovation, leadership, and impact. Over the coming months, we will engage our faculty, staff, and student body, as well as our campus and College communities, to begin to envision and invest in our future. We will redouble and refine our efforts across our vibrant portfolio of research and educational programs.

As we engage in this process, I would like to hear from the members of our community. Please visit this link to share your thoughts on what is best about our College and on where you see opportunities for its future growth.

Last but certainly not least, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support for Lehigh University and the Rossin College. I am particularly grateful to Professors John Coulter and Dan Lopresti for their service as Dean during the interim period. We are poised to embark upon a new era in Lehigh Engineering because of everything that you all have done up to this point. Together, we will continue to transform learning, scholarship, and innovation in our College.

I look forward to hearing from each of you, and to collaborating with all of you to build the future of the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Go Lehigh engineers!

Sincerely,

dean's signature
