The Center for Dialogue, Ethics and Spirituality serves the educational mission of Lehigh University by providing space and resources designed to enhance the “ethical and spiritual development” of those who live and work at Lehigh—students, faculty and staff. Recognizing that people of good will disagree with one another on topics involving ethical analysis, spirituality and religious interpretation, the Center seeks to promote the values of open and free inquiry, engaged dialogue, and respect for persons regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. In support of Lehigh University’s stated commitment to “harmonious cultural diversity” and the expressed hope that “all members of the Lehigh community might develop as effective and enlightened citizens,” the Center is open to the entire campus to serve both academic and co-curricular needs. The Center is directed by the Office of the University Chaplain. The Dialogue Center will be closed for the month of July. It will reopen on August 1, 2016.
