Lang Center Associates

Lang Center Associates (LCAs) are student leaders who assist other students by providing valuable resources and advising them on how to navigate the opportunities for civic engagement and social action at the Lang Center and beyond. In concert with the Lang Center’s mission, they strive to “prepare and motivate students to understand and engage issues of civic and social concern and … to set their own paths towards shaping a more just and compassionate world.”

If you’d like to meet with an LCA, feel free to email them directly or contact Simran Singh ’19, our Lead Associate, to set up an appointment. You can also find an LCA at the front desk from 9 a.m. to midnight Monday–Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday.

The LCAs are managed by:
Heitor Santos  — LCA Student Outreach & Advising
Delores Robinson  — Building Host Duties
