Welcome to the Lehigh University Out List! This is a public-facing listing of LGBTQ+ faculty and staff at Lehigh. It was created to further the Faculty & Staff Pride Network's mission to foster and sustain a welcoming and affirming climate on campus for LGBTQ+ people. In addition to providing opportunities for networking and mentoring within and beyond and Lehigh community, the Out List is an affirmation of Lehigh's LGBTQ+ community as active, present, and integral to the university.
