Am I allowed to make purchases for my club during the remainder of the semester? 

We are asking students to not make any purchases without consulting the Office of Student Engagement first, by emailing us at instuact@lehigh.edu.

Will club activities resume while classes are being held remotely?

We encourage student groups to continue engaging with their members throughout the remote period. We ask that you do not hold any formal and in-person gatherings. Some ideas of things you might consider is to virtually host club meetings, discussions, and engaging with your niche communities via social media. We recognize that most groups are in the process of electing new executive boards and fall planning. We encourage you to think creatively on how to continue that process and ensure the proactive sustainability of your club as outlined in your club’s constitution. You can expect for our office to still host club re-registration, sustainability tips, and fall expo sign ups. However, first prioritize your academics, health and safety. Please work with our office as questions or concerns arise. 

Will off campus events be cancelled for clubs and organizations?

At this time, all non-essential gatherings of 10 or more people are strongly discouraged until communicated otherwise. Organizers should postpone meetings and events, or consider remote technology.

Who should I contact if I have any questions regarding my club or organization?

Please email instuact@lehigh.edu or call our office at 610-758-6670.
