Lehigh University’s Commitment to a Diverse and Inclusive Community

A statement on the Supreme Court ruling on race-conscious admissions.

As a learning and educational community where the open exchange of ideas and views enables broad discourse on a variety of subjects, our community is at its best when it comprises individuals from diverse backgrounds who bring a broad range of perspectives to our classrooms, laboratories and campus learning environment. Although the Supreme Court rulings in Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina change the ways in which all colleges and universities, including Lehigh, can seek to build a diverse student community, what remains unchanged is our commitment to doing so—fostering a diverse and inclusive Lehigh community which is vital to providing a world-class education.   

Our strengths as a university are enhanced by our differences as individuals. Lehigh will continue our focus on being a destination of choice for the students we aim to attract, admitting a diverse group of students, and supporting a rich, diverse and inclusive educational community.
