Twice each year, all Lehigh staff and faculty members are invited to special events that celebrate our work and our community.
The Lehigh Appreciation Dinner
Staff and faculty gather each spring for a festive dinner and program. The annual University Awards are presented, and we also honor retirees and remember colleagues who have passed away.
Invitations are emailed to employees in April. Be sure to RSVP if you plan on attend.
The Staff and Faculty Holiday Party
Our December holiday party is always a fun and relaxed event. The Asa Packer Dining Room is transformed into a different theme each year – from the nostalgic to a "party at the top of the world.” The theme carries through the delicious foods, décor, and music.
Faculty and staff have also made philanthropy an important part of the holiday party tradition. The party committee selects a charitable organization to benefit from the generosity of our employees. In recent years, Community Action Coalition of the Lehigh Valley, Turning Point Of The Lehigh Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank have been among the groups receiving cash and in-kind donations.
