Western Regional Office

Lehigh established the Western Regional Office (WRO) to extend educational opportunities for Lehigh students and faculty by building curricular and research partnerships with dynamic enterprises in selected key western cities.

Areas of WRO engagement include: academic programs, student recruitment, alumni relations, university events, development, corporate and industry partnerships and career services. A cornerstone partnership for Lehigh's presence in the west, which launched in fall of 2016, is the Lehigh@Nasdaq Center where Lehigh serves as the official academic in residence partner.
