Founder's Celebration

Each October since 1879, Lehigh has commemorated Founder Asa Packer and the magnitude of his impact with a celebration. This year was no exception! We are so appreciative that more than 1,000 Lehigh community members took the time to tune in for Lehigh’s first-ever virtual Founder's Celebration and Family Week.

Founder’s Celebration featured recognition of Lehigh leaders of all generations, the unveiling of the Class of 2021’s numbers at the Clayton University Center at Packer Hall, and a milestone “beam topping” moment in the progress of Lehigh’s new Health, Science, and Technology (HST) building. Watch the Founder’s Celebration video.

Family Week 2020 featured a full schedule with more than 70 virtual sessions, including updates from university leaders, college deans, and student offices on academic programs, student services, COVID protocol, and much more!
