Lehigh University Model

Evolution

As Lehigh pushes forward on plans to add more students and scholars to its campus community, it will also launch a campus-wide infrastructure initiative that will include the construction of new residential and academic facilities, as well as renovations or expansions for some of its most iconic buildings.

The scope of work will extend from the top of South Mountain into the neighborhoods of South Bethlehem, and will provide the campus community with new venues for research, discovery and student life, as well as creative spaces that will spark innovation and bring faculty, students, staff and the community closer together.

Capital Projects

The capital projects called for in the Path to Prominence will enhance Lehigh’s ability to serve its students and support the work of its world-class faculty. The projects will support residential life, academics, research and athletics.
