Wall Street Council MyLehigh Group
Welcome to the home of the Lehigh Wall Street Council
History and Mission
Lehigh University alumni are strongly represented on Wall Street. Lehigh graduates occupy leadership positions within J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and numerous other firms within the global financial services community. The number of alumni and recent graduates working within the industry continues to grow.
In June 2002, a number of these leaders joined then-President Gregory C. Farrington in creating the Lehigh University Wall Street Council. Open to Lehigh alumni, parents and friends of the University engaged in the financial services industry, the Council was established to cultivate a Lehigh alumni community within the global financial services industry that supports the advancement of the professional and academic goals of Lehigh alumni, students and faculty, and of the University. The Council has set four goals:
- To foster the development of a Lehigh alumni network in the global financial services community.
- To enhance the opportunity for Lehigh students and alumni to enter and advance their careers in the global financial services industry.
- To strive to contribute to the academic endeavors of the University.
- To promote an environment for Lehigh alumni to strengthen the reputation and support the mission and goals of Lehigh University.
