The Smart Growth Working Group hosted their first open forum on Sept. 14, which focused on Lehigh's Mountaintop Campus. Their second forum is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 27, and the Asa Packer Campus will be the focal point of that discussion. On October 6, the third forum will center around Lehigh’s Goodman Campus.

The Research for Impact Working Group is hosting a Research Investment Symposium on October 10–invitation to the campus community will be coming soon. They are also meeting with deans and conducting open zoom sessions with faculty across all disciplines.

The Education With Purpose and Lehigh User Experience Working Groups continue to meet with various campus stakeholders–academic departments, undergraduate and graduate students, ERAC, the Pride Center, and faculty leadership, to name a few. Working group members hope that they can hear from you soon.

Dynamic conversations regarding stakeholder engagement are occurring with the Working Groups, Throughline Champions and Senior Leadership at the Strategic Planning Advisory Council meetings, which is an indicator that the strategic planning structure is working to provide open and transparent communications at all levels of the organization.

Please mark your calendars for November 16–a strategic planning campus moment–where you’ll hear from the working groups on their progress and emerging initiatives. And, continue to check the events calendar for upcoming Our Future, Our Lehigh strategic planning engagement sessions. Please continue to contribute your thoughtful ideas on Lehigh’s Idea Portal.
