Year of Connections is an initiative from Office of International Affairs, in collaboration with other university groups, to use our current situation as a context for examining the importance of international interconnectedness.

Right now, we have students learning around the world. There is no single Lehigh campus. How can we remain connected to each other and to the university? How can we move beyond the work that needs to get done and deepen our understanding of one another? How might we find value in this strange moment?
