About the Exhibit


This exhibition was initially developed to celebrate the opening of the STEPS facility in August, 2010, showcasing some of the rich resources Lehigh's libraries have to support the misson of STEPS. As I researched for the exhibit, I realized that Lehigh was taking steps towards becoming a more environmentally savvy and sustainable school on multiple levels. From new collaborations among STEPS faculty, to the establishment of a community garden, people at Lehigh are working towards a better environment. The exhibition highlights the contributions towards environmental education and action here at Lehigh.

Many people contributed to the success of this exhibit. I want to thank everyone who helped bring Environmental STEPS together.
