Non-Discrimination Statement

Lehigh University upholds The Principles of Our Equitable Community and is committed to providing an educational, working, co-curricular, social, and living environment for all students, staff, faculty, trustees, contract workers, and visitors that is free from harassment and discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital or familial status, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status. Such harassment or discrimination is unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated.

The University strongly encourages (and, depending upon the circumstances, may require) students, faculty, staff or visitors who experience or witness harassment or discrimination, or have information about harassment or discrimination in University programs or activities, to immediately report such conduct.

Reports or inquiries should be made to:
Equal Opportunity Compliance Coordinator [1]
Alumni Memorial Building, Room 105, (610) 758-3535,

In the event that the conduct involves the Equal Opportunity Compliance Coordinator, or there is a reasonable concern about a potential conflict of interest or bias, reports should be made to:
Associate Vice President, Human Resources
306 S. New Street, Suite 437, (610) 758-3900,

The University takes steps to ensure that a hostile environment on these bases does not exist on its campus or in its programs and activities and to respond effectively to formal and informal allegations of harassment ordiscrimination. The University will promptly investigate complaints or incidents of such harassment or discrim- ination and will take prompt and appropriate measures, including disciplinary action, against individuals found to have engaged in harassment or discrimination. Lehigh University will take action reasonably designed toend a hostile environment if one has been created, prevent its recurrence, and, when appropriate, take steps to remedy its effects on individuals and the campus community.

The University encourages students and employees to work together to prevent harassment and discrimination in any University program or activity, including all academic, extra-curricular, and University-sponsored activities.
