REACH (Resources to Engage, Accomplish, Connect & Help) is an on-campus learning opportunity offered through ERAC (The Employee Relations Advisory Committee). This program offers presentations from different areas of the University (e.g. Alumni Relations, First-Year Experience, Iacocca Institute, Council on Equity and Community) to provide a sense of what each does and how it serves the Lehigh community. Time is also allocated for networking and casual information sharing.
Meetings will occur monthly from October 2016 to April 2017 for a total of 7 meetings. Session topics being driven by cohort suggestions. Each session will run from 12 noon-1:30pm and the meeting format will include a 30 minute participant networking (bring your own lunch) followed by a 1 hour session / presentation.
Sessions will occur on the following dates from 12noon-1:30pm:
Testimonials from past cohorts include, "REACH was the program that I thought offered the best opportunity to learn about the Lehigh culture." "There aren't many things going on at Lehigh where you get to both learn something and really interact with fellow employees." "It's an intimate program. You can mingle with members of your group and the presenters are very approachable."
Patricipants should commit to all sessions and sessions are only open to registered cohort participants. Sessions will also provide time for participants to discuss how the information learned could be relevant to their work and how they could envision collaborating with the presenters and with members of the cohort.
