Faculty and Staff Guides

The following guides are designed to familarize you with the procedures, benefits, rights and responsibilities that go along with working at Lehigh. 

The guides are a resource to turn to if you have questions however they are not intended to be full statements of policies or benefits provided by the university. You can access all Finance and Administration and Human Resources policies from this site [Lehigh log-in required].

Should the information in these guides and the relevant official policy be inconsistent, Lehigh University's official policy applies. The governing documents for employee benefits are also available in Human Resources.
