When you enter the College of Education at Lehigh University, you immediately become part of a close-knit network that will become one of your best allies in your rise to the top.
Our Connections, Become Your Connections
Our educational model has always connected people, places, programs and partners in a unique ad powerful network to create the knowledge needed to meet global and societal needs.
You will be going through your degree program with peers. As you share insights and benefit from each other’s experiences, you will be creating a new network — in person and on-line — that will provide you with valuable contacts in the years to come. These relationships will endure throughout your working life and even afterward, opening doors to career moves, referrals, and new ideas.
In addition to the network of peers that you create, Lehigh University delivers to you an impressive network of alumni, locally, regionally, nationally and globally. Our alumni live throughout the U.S. and in exciting places all over the world, working in a broad spectrum of organizations.
Want us to play a more active role in making those important connections for you? Our dedicated Lehigh University Service Center provides support for those looking to take the next step in their career as well as those looking for qualified professionals for their organization.
Our teachers are leaders in their schools and communities, our school psychologists direct entire district implementations, our principals and superintendents are recognized as the best in their states and the country, and our mental health professionals are recognized by the American Psychological Association as being the best in the world.
A Global Network
We have over 7,000 alumni around the globe. Attending Lehigh means joining a network of educators and human service professionals that are making critical improvements within the fabric of the community. The connections that you make during your studies with your cohort, with faculty, and in the community last a lifetime and continue to grow.
When you join Lehigh's College of Education, you join a family.
