Well Wishes for Dr. Lang on Retirement

Dr. Patricia Lang will retire from Ball State University (BSU) in December. She shared her expertise with the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) community for over a decade across two awards. We have been fortunate to have Dr. Lang’s expertise as Co-Principal Investigator and Director at BSU since 2016.

She has been a supportive colleague and mentored students so they have thrived in a competitive STEM environment. Students and colleagues share their well wishes.

Congratulations on a job well done!  You are not only a phenomenal academic leader, but also an extraordinary human being.  I have been truly privileged to share your friendship!

Dr. Lang has been the driving force behind the LSAMP program at Ball State for the better part of the last 15 years. Her vision, passion, and commitment to serving underrepresented students has allowed many students to experience the joys and hard work associated with performing and presenting research at all levels.  She has built a firm foundation on which the LSAMP program will continue to grow and thrive at Ball State.  We thank her for all that she has put into the program and wish her the very best in the next exciting chapter in her life.

– Anita Gnezda

We look forward to continuing our work with her as she serves as Co-Principal Investigator in her Emerita role at BSU. We wish her much success and pursuit of her many interests in the next phase of her life.

Assessment Institute in Indianapolis

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is the nation's oldest and largest event focused exclusively on outcomes assessment in higher education. We anticipate that some 1000 educators from virtually every state and several other countries will take part in the 2018 Institute.

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is designed to provide opportunities for (1) individuals and campus teams new to outcomes assessment to acquire fundamental knowledge about the field, (2) individuals who have worked as leaders in outcomes assessment to share and extend their knowledge and skills, and (3) those interested in outcomes assessment at any level to establish networks that serve as sources of support and expertise beyond the dates of the Institute.
