Virtual Diversity Achievers Program

Lehigh University values a diverse, inclusive and vibrant campus community. We believe the best way for a student to learn whether a college or university is a good fit is by connecting with members of its community. As a result, we offer selected students interested in a culturally based program the opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Lehigh through the virtual Diversity Achievers Program (DAP). Participants will have time to interact casually with current students, their admissions counselor and Lehigh’s Student Advocacy Centers virtually. They will also have the opportunity to attend virtual classes and learn about support services.
