Students seek to enrich their academic experience by deepening their understanding of current topics while also embodying this knowledge in their daily life. Lehigh identifies sustainability issues as highly relevant in today’s society and promotes learning opportunities through a series of co-curricular activities. Below are some highlights of our efforts within Engagement.
- With our sustainability student educators program (Eco-Reps), we promote sustainable living behavior for 3,331 students.
- The Sustainable Office Program was created recognizing faculty and staff members’ impact on promoting environmental practices across campus, and has served 129 employees.
- We have 2,700 students engaged in community service.
- We have partnered with community garden programs, and the Bethlehem Area School District is a lead partner in a Community School initiative.
