LU/UN partnership provides opportunities for all Lehigh students, faculty, and staff to gain skills necessary to become successful global changemakers by engaging with the United Nations in meaningful ways.
Each year more than 1,000 Lehigh faculty, staff and students attend UN conferences, high-level briefings and private meetings with ambassadors and other UN officials in New York City and on campus. No matter what your major, year or discipline, there’s something exciting that you can become involved with via the Lehigh University / United Nations Partnership.
