About Lehigh University Trademarks and Licensing

Lehigh University enjoys a rich history dating back to 1865, and since has gained world-renowned recognition as an institution of higher education. This tradition has lead to the development of a loyal alumni, student and supporter base worldwide.

In developing our strong tradition, Lehigh has become identifiable by several words and symbols that are known as trademarks.

A trademark may be a word, symbol, design, or a combination of a word and design, a catch phrase or even a unique sound, which identifies and distinguishes the goods or services of one party from those of another.

Lehigh has several “protected” trademarks that have been federally registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The tradition of Lehigh, coupled with its large alumni and supporter base, has produced a considerable demand for products that display the marks associated with Lehigh.

The Lehigh University Trademarks and Licensing Program was created in 1995 to ensure that:

  • The public properly identifies and associates University marks on products bearing the University’s logos
  • Lehigh’s name and symbols are protected
  • There is a cooperative relationship with licensees to assist in the further development of a market for officially licensed products of Lehigh University.
