I-DISCovery is a casual event for getting to know your colleagues from across the university. Meet new potential collaborators, chat with old friends, explore Building C, and have some snacks.
Plus, have you ever wondered what your colleagues are up to? At I-DISCovery you have the chance to test your knowledge of your colleagues' research and scholarship activities. Guess who developed a new widget or who uncovered the causes of Zoom fatigue. “Guess Who?” (Research Edition) gives you an opportunity to connect with your fellow I-DISC members from across the university and sparks conversations about intersecting research interests. Discover connections and reconnect with colleagues in person.
Refreshments will be available.

Join us for an afternoon of I-DISCovery!

The Inaugural I-DISCovery Event was held on March 4, 2021 

I-DISCovery is a research networking event for faculty in the data, intelligent systems, and computation space at Lehigh. Faculty can connect, exchange ideas, spark collaborations, and share skills and interests.

  • I-DISCovery starts with a Jamboard—a virtual whiteboard where you can post “sticky notes” with collaboration ideas, and read the notes posted by others. The board will be open from Monday, March 1– Thursday, March 4.

  • Then, meet up on Airmeet for the I-DISCovery Coffee Hour, where you can discuss collaborations with colleagues, on Friday, March 5 from 10–11:30 AM.

  • Links to both the Jamboard and the Airmeet event will be e-mailed to all I-DISC faculty members before March 1.

Not an I-DISC faculty member? Just e-mail Sarah Wing at  to request an invitation. The event is open to all Lehigh faculty and staff.
