Our mission is to create a welcoming community for international and domestic students by supporting collaborative planning with our member clubs.

During the 2024-2025 academic year, the Global Union will be inactive. We acknowledge and appreciate the rich history of the GU that has supported international students and global minded Lehigh students for many years. The goal during this pause is to assess the mission of the organization and determine how to best serve the current and future Lehigh community. We welcome your feedback if you have thoughts: or


The Global Union is a student led organization. It has its own members and programing, but also facilitates the events and activites of member clubs. In their willingness to be global in outlook, the GU and its clubs share a common mission and vision to increase globalization on our campus.

Located on the second floor of Coxe Hall, Room 215, the Global Union Lounge hosts numerous events focused on international educational, cultural and social issues. Annual events include International Education Week and Culture Nights. All events at the GU are free and open to the entire Lehigh University community and residents of the region.
