Students at Lehigh University get the best of both worlds: a student-centered residential college with liberal arts strengths, and a premier research university with strong programs in engineering, business, and education. Though Lehigh’s internal community knows and understands the value of this experience, the institution wanted to ensure that external stakeholders beyond Lehigh fully understand the integrated learning experience.
Merit allows the university to connect the individual story of every Lehigh student to audiences familiar with that student. Lehigh uses Merit to promote student accomplishments to Merit’s network of stakeholders. Each student’s personalized Merit page — a positive, public online presence discoverable by future employers — is automatically updated with branded, institutionally-verified stories of their involvement and success.
