for Civic & Social Responsibility

Science & Society

In the spirit of a true liberal arts education, Science & Society Lang Center associates are here to help you connect your “hard sciences” education in the classroom with your social calling. It is imperative to include the natural sciences in the conversation on social justice, as technologies and sciences have the rich capacity to expedite and maximize social impact.
