Academics

With about 7,000 total students and four colleges, Lehigh University is a thriving academic community. We have a passion for discovery that results in a highly collaborative research culture.

Our students are visionaries who share a zest for discovery and invention—who recognize there is a lot to learn from each other, and from both successes and failures. They are curious, enterprising students who work side by side with faculty who encourage independent inquiry, creativity … and then to routinely challenge the status quo.
