Student Award Honors Dennis Lang
For someone who volunteers his time at the UW, Dennis Lang, guiding light behind the Disability Studies Program, has made a tremendous mark on the University. It was Lang’s activism in part that resulted in the program’s creation. Then just as he expected his part was done, he was — quite fittingly it seems — he became the founding director of the Program
In 2008, due to the efforts of two graduate students who were mentored by Lang, a new scholarship is being set up in his name. The Dennis Lang Student Award in Disability Studies, offered through the UW Foundation, helps undergraduate and graduate students committed to advancing the field of disability studies.
