Academic Experience


Faculty, staff, and students utilize the campus as a living laboratory to identify opportunities and apply innovative approaches to reach ambitious goals.  Lehigh is also actively coordinating and integrating sustainability education and communication in the classroom.  Below are some highlights of our efforts within Academic Experience.

  • During the 2014-2015 academic year, 77 courses that address sustainability were offered.  
  • In 2015-2016, we expanded that number to 116.
  • Lehigh students have the opportunity to engage in sustainability-related careers with a demonstrated unique background.
  • The number of students who graduated from programs with a sustainability learning outcome in 2016 was 63, and we have 21 academic departments with at least one faculty member conducting sustainability research.
