Each year, the Eugene Lang College community gathers to celebrate our thoughtful, dedicated, and engaged students. We recognize high-achieving, academically advanced students as well as their unique and groundbreaking work, from nesting oysters in the Hudson to teaching in schools in East Harlem and learning Khmer in Cambodia. And we encourage our students to continue to challenge themselves, to think deeply and critically about today’s tough problems, and to engage with their communities to effect change.
The Lang College Dean’s Honor Symposium is a conference at which students can present their academic work and co-curricular projects to the Lang community. It is held directly prior to the Dean's List and Student Award Ceremony. Participating students must apply to present their work in the fall semester. The application process is designed to identify outstanding undergraduate research and creative projects. Proposals from any academic discipline or combination of disciplines are invited; furthermore, proposals that explore critical histories as well as contemporary social issues are particularly welcome, since social justice is at the core of the liberal arts education offered at Lang. Projects can range from rigorous academic writing to civic engagement and social justice work to creative projects to exemplary work outside of Lang such as part of an internship or work experience.
Students may apply to present their work either as part of a panel or through a poster session.
Applications are due on October 19, 2016, and can be found here.
Students in both panels and poster sessions will work with faculty through the spring semester to develop their presentations. Students who participate in the panels will need to register for a 0-1-credit course with their faculty leader.

Dean's Honor Symposium
2015 marked the 30th Anniversary of Eugene Lang College. The
award ceremony featured a special celebration on the impact of the college. The ceremony highlighted the amazing work of our
Lang Alumni and put forward creativity, ingenuity, and potential of our current students.
In 2013, the Dean's List and Student Award ceremony celebrated our college’s founder,
Mr. Eugene Lang, whose own journey has had profound impacts on the college and the world. Recent Lang graduate Irene Lee curated an exhibit exploring Mr. Lang's and Lang students' work in New York City, in the world, and in giving back. The exhibit included pages and excerpts from Mr. Lang’s speeches, graduating seniors’ maps of their intellectual journeys at Lang, photographs, and objects that together tell the story of the man, the college, and the more than 3,700 Lang graduates who have been shaped by his vision for education.
