You're Invited: Participate in VISIONS Workshops

As a sponsor of the upcoming VISIONS workshops, The CEC wants to share President John Simon's recent invitation and encourage interested Lehigh community members to sign up. 


Dear members of the campus community,

We are pleased to announce that Deborah J. Walker, senior consultant at VISIONS, Inc., is returning to campus in January to conduct additional workshops. The "Introducing VISIONS' Multicultural Process of Change" sessions are once again being sponsored by the Council for Equity and Community (CEC). Dr. Walker will be conducting 4-hour sessions designed to introduce Lehigh staff and faculty to the framework and common language being used by the CEC and senior leadership to enhance the university's internal capacity to create an equitable campus community. If you have already participated in an introductory workshop but would like a "deeper dive," there will also be a full-day follow-up session offered.

To date, nearly 250 faculty, staff, and students have benefited from VISIONS workshops. If you have not yet had the opportunity to take part in one, the next set is scheduled for January 19, 20, and 21 (TuesdayWednesday, and Thursday). To sign up, send an email to the CEC at  

We encourage supervisors to make work time available to those who wish to engage in this training. Those staff who need their supervisor's approval for this kind of activity during work hours should seek that prior to signing up for one of these sessions.

For additional information about VISIONS, feel free to ask any member of the CEC. They would be happy to answer your questions. Thank you for your support as we continue to work together to create a respectful campus environment, where diversity in all its forms is recognized, understood, and celebrated.

John Simon, President 
Pat Farrell, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
