Lehigh Alumni Sustainability Alliance

LASA Logo

The Lehigh Alumni Sustainability Alliance is a group of alumni, faculty and staff committed to sustainability — the economic, environmental, and social aspects – in professions and industries of the Lehigh community.  The goals of the Lehigh Alumni Sustainability Alliance are:

  • To facilitate and create opportunities for Lehigh alumni to advance their careers in sustainability-focused and sustainability-related industries.
  • To strive to contribute to the on-campus academic and operational goals of the University through experiential learning opportunities.
  • To generate interdisciplinary connections that strengthen the reputation and support the mission and goals of Lehigh University.

With these goals in mind, and with a strong connection to Lehigh’s Office of Sustainability, Lehigh Alumni Sustainability Alliance members are committed to bringing their experience and expertise back to Lehigh to help shape the next generation of professionals in the field as well as helping Lehigh alumni thrive professionally.
