Diversity Achievers Program

Lehigh University values a diverse, inclusive and vibrant campus community. At the same time, we believe the best way for a student to learn whether a college or university is a good fit is by spending time on campus. As a result, we offer selected students interested in a culturally based overnight program the opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Lehigh for two days and one night through the Diversity Achievers Program (DAP). On Sunday, October 21, 2018, participants will interact with current students from around the world, learn about support services, enjoy dinner and fun at one of our local attractions, and will be hosted by a current Lehigh student in a residence hall. On Monday, October 22, 2018 DAP participants will have a classroom experience among other informative sessions.

Required items:

Supplemental application requirements should be in one pdf document and emailed to Leigha Adduci, Events Coordinator, at LUDiversity@lehigh.edu. Please title the email “Attn. DAP Application Requirements.” These items should only be submitted following completion of the DAP application. Application materials are due by noon EST on September 7, 2018. Only complete applications submitted by the deadline will be considered. We will notify those selected to participate within one week of the application deadline. Admission to this program is not related to admission to Lehigh University.

If you have any questions, please contact Rudy Favard, Assistant Director of Diversity Recruitment, at ruf218@lehigh.edu, or Leigha Adduci, Events Coordinator, at LUDiversity@lehigh.edu.

Those unable or not selected to attend DAP are still encouraged to attend our Senior Open House Program or other campus visit opportunities.
