Four Themes

These themes provide a focus and scope for the strategic planning process and serve as the foundation of the charge for the working groups. Input from the working groups and the Lehigh community will inform the strategic goals and key initiatives in our strategic plan.

“This effort will help shape our course over the next decade, identifying areas critical to our research and educational mission where, in the face of the many challenges facing higher education, Lehigh can innovate and be a leader—be first or best in a given area and build on our unique strengths.” - President Joseph J. Helble ’82
