The Lang Center serves as a home base for many activities and programs linking the campus to communities in the U.S. and abroad through service and social action. We sponsor and co-sponsor conferences, speakers and workshops that will educate and inform the community service, social action, and social justice work of students, staff, faculty and community members. It may be possible to obtain co-sponsorship from the Lang Center for events or other opportunities that are commensurate with the mission of the Center. Interested?
