Lehigh University and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania: Partnering to Transform a Steel Town into a College Town

June 18, 2013


Since Lehigh University was founded in 1865, it has been inextricably
tied to the City of Bethlehem in eastern Pennsylvania. Rich
in history and steeped in cultural tradition, the area continues to
be an outstanding home for the university. In the aftermath of the
fall of Bethlehem Steel, Lehigh and community partners are working together to forge a prosperous future.
