New perspectives from a new partnership

During the summer of 2016, students from the Pratt Institute in New York City joined with peers at Lehigh to collaborate a number of interdisciplinary projects as part of Lehigh's innovative Mountaintop program, which has for the past four summers challenged students to increase their capacities for independent inquiry, to take intellectual risks and learn from their failures, and take on important problems to effect constructive and sustainable change

The partnership between the two institutions helped open students' eyes to new ways of thinking and changed the way they think about their work, their research and even their career aspirations.

As the summer came to a close, Lehigh visual storyteller Stephanie Veto spoke to the Pratt students--as well as the Lehigh students they collaborated with--about their experiences atop South Mountain.
