The intellectual diversity of our students, faculty, and staff is a key ingredient for achieving a diverse community on our campus. Academic excellence requires a learning community in which people of different backgrounds and perspectives join in the pursuit of knowledge and truth. Lehigh University is determined to prepare students to succeed in the world, and in a nation, where multiple viewpoints offer challenges and enrich our lives. Thus, Lehigh University will continue to make it a top priority to make our campus community more diverse for study and working.
The Diversity Initiative is a long-term effort with evolving strategies as goals are met. Creating an inclusive diverse community can be achieved only through the focused efforts of each of us and is the responsibility and accountability of the leadership on every level.
