The Center for Financial Services (CFS) within Lehigh University’s College of Business brings together industry participants, academics, and students in order to engage in meaningful discussions on topics that affect financial services. The Center hosts a variety of conferences, from panel discussions to full-day events, to provide our faculty, alumni, and students with an opportunity to discuss and debate current challenges facing financial services. In addition, the Center highlights academic research that may be useful to our colleagues in industry. I hope that you will take some time to explore the website and consider participating in the Center's activities. I look forward to hearing from you about ways the CFS can accomplish its mission.
