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 use this calendar to find an advising slot that works with your schedule, or feel free to reach out to them directly. 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.

For more information about the LCA's, contact any of the following staff members:
