Message from the Dean of Students

You are here

On behalf of the Dean of Students office staff, welcome to Lehigh!  As a part of the Division of Student Affairs, the DOS staff strives to foster opportunities for learning, leadership, and personal growth for our students through their residential, engagement, and academic experiences.  The five foundations of bLUeprint guide the work we do with students, and this purposeful approach to our work is at the heart of the DOS philosophy.  

We are committed to working with and providing engagement opportunities for all of our students, and during Fall 2020, we are focused on promoting these opportunities for our students who are working remotely and living on campus.  The DOS staff look forward to working with you during your Lehigh years – whether that be through clubs and organizations, your residential experience, or navigating academic or personal challenges.  Please contact us with questions, concerns, or just to chat.  We look forward to working with you during your Lehigh journey. 

Katherine W. Lavinder

Dean of Students
