We are committed to creating a diverse, vibrant community of the most talented students, regardless of their financial capacity. We provide the resources, support, and facilities these students need to excel while at Lehigh—so they are prepared to lead lives of consequence thereafter. You can help ensure the most talented and ambitious students always have a place at Lehigh.
We seek to establish lasting and unassailable resources for financial aid in the form of endowed scholarships and the Lehigh Fund. Your support of endowed scholarships ensures Lehigh can continue our commitment to meet the demonstrated financial aid needs of all students, while gifts to the Lehigh Fund help bridge the gap between the demonstrated needs of students and what our financial aid budget can provide.
With this campaign, we are building 21st-century support systems that will enable all students—particularly first generation and low-income students—to have access to a Lehigh education and achieve at the highest level. These programs span recruitment and admissions, student life, academic coaching, mentoring, and career development, among others, and are being coordinated across the university by a new Center for Student Access and Success. Your support will help provide students with the services they need to take advantage of all that Lehigh has to offer so that they can excel.
A renovation and expansion of the University Center, as well as the new 720-bed Bridge West residence hall, will reimagine the Lehigh student experience. The University Center project will create updated dining spaces, event venues, and new recreational and work spaces, while honoring the building’s historic splendor. The adjacent Bridge West brings a modern living complex to the heart of campus. Together, they form a crossroads where students can relax, work, and socialize. Your support will help foster an environment that unifies our community, strengthens our traditions, and creates an atmosphere of connections, collaboration, and leadership.
