Each year, the Eugene Lang College community gathers to celebrate our thoughtful, dedicated, and engaged students. We recognize high achieving, academically rigorous 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 affect change.
The spring 2016 Lang College Dean’s Honor Symposium is a conference for students to present their academic work and co-curricular projects to the Lang community.
Students may apply to present their work either as part of a panel or through the poster session.
Applications are due on December 7th, 2015.
The application process is designed to identify outstanding undergraduate research and creative projects. Proposals from any academic discipline or inter-disciplines are invited; furthermore, proposals that explore critical histories as well as contemporary social issues are highly encouraged because at Lang, social justice is at the core of our liberal arts education. Projects can range from rigorous academic writing, to civic engagement and social justice work, to creative projects, to exemplary work outside of their Lang courses as part of an internship or work experience.

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.
