The spring 2019 Lang College Dean’s Honor Symposium is a conference for students to 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 inter-disciplines are invited; furthermore, proposals that explore critical histories as well as contemporary social issues are highly encouraged because at Lang, social justice is at the core of our liberal arts education. By participating you will gain valuable experience presenting your work and engaging the public, as well as building your resume. There is no GPA requirement to participate in the Dean's Honor Symposium.
Students may apply to present their work either as part of a panel or through the poster session.
Applications are due on October 5th, 2018.
