Academics & Research

Lehigh is a premier residential research university, internationally recognized for research excellence and a distinctive student experience. Part of that is preparing students to address the grand challenges of our time by understanding the complex convergence of environmental, social, and economic factors underlying today's challenges and by creating sustainable solutions for our resource-strapped future.

Through the creation of a campus that is a model of sustainability in practice, teaching, and research, Lehigh will enhance awareness and knowledge of sustainable practices and ensure hands on learning is woven into Lehigh's educational experience.
