Dean's List and Awards Ceremony

  • Each year, the Lang 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 learning Khmer in Cambodia.

    Dean's Honor Symposium

    The spring 2019 Lang Dean’s Honor Symposium is a conference at which students present their academic work and co-curricular projects to the Lang community. The application process is designed to identify outstanding undergraduate research and creative projects. Proposals from any academic discipline or combination of disciplines are invited. Proposals that explore critical histories as well as contemporary social issues are particularly welcome, since at Lang, social justice is at the core of our liberal arts education. By participating, students will gain valuable experience presenting their work and engaging the public, as well as building their résumés. There is no GPA requirement for participation in the Dean's Honor Symposium. 

    If your project is selected, you will be required to register for the Dean's Honor Symposium course on Mondays in the spring semester and attend weekly meetings until the symposium, on April 15.

    Apply by October 5, 2018.

  • 30th Anniversary Celebration

    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.

    Eugene Lang Words and Voices: 2013 Tribute to Mr. Lang

    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.
