In honor of Lehigh's sesquicentennial in 2015, the Employee Relations Advisory Committee asked the campus community to finish this sentence: "Staff matters because...". Below are some of the responses.
...their work facilitates the work and life of students and faculty.
...without them, the university simply wouldn't be what it is.
...pleasant coworkers make all the difference in having a comfortable and productive workplace.
...our excitement, passion and commitment to our work at Lehigh helps create innovation, creativity and community on our campus.
...without a firm foundation the structure will collapse; staff are that foundation.
...a University couldn't run without them.
