Be part of a college that prides itself on embracing new approaches, encouraging different points of view and welcoming alternative values. Within the College of Arts and Sciences, our best work is driven by and enhanced through our eager participation in an expansive dialogue that values diverse opinions and differing perspectives, and through which we gain a better understanding of the complexity of social, scientific, and cultural questions, as well as our own blind spots.
As the foundation of a Lehigh education, the College of Arts and Sciences provides a learning environment that engages students with faculty who are eager to explore the intersections of their respective fields. We recognize that learning is at its best when students are educated in an inclusive setting. Building on this philosophy, the College of Arts and Sciences started a broad project in 2012, Dialogue Toward Understanding, and introduced a Join the Dialogue campaign, an initiative to invite our students into conversations showcasing disparate views on the major issues challenging us today. Faculty encourage students to speak up, to question, to find solutions that may lie outside the norm, knowing they can do so in a supportive and inclusive environment.
Dialogue Toward Understanding makes a compelling case for the unique and essential work of Lehigh’s College of Arts and Sciences as it differs from that of other colleges at Lehigh University and as it is distinct in emphasis and depth of interdisciplinary commitment from other arts and sciences colleges nationally. Be part of something different. Make a difference. Join the dialogue.
