The Langenberg Legacy

The Langenberg Legacy is a grant program through the University System of Maryland (USM) designed to fund student-led projects focused on civic education and/or civic engagement. The Langenberg Legacy evolved out of the Langenberg Lecture and Award program, which was originally established through a solicitation for an endowed USM Foundation fund in honor of former USM Chancellor Donald N. Langenberg on his retirement in 2002. The Langenberg Legacy reimagines the Langenberg Lecture within the context of USM’s Civic Education and Civic Engagement priority.

The Langenberg Legacy welcomed its first cohort of Fellows in academic year 2022– 2023, with a new cohort of Fellows completing civic engagement projects each subsequent year.

Students’ projects will be shared here and are COMING SOON!

Jaden Mikoulinskii, 2023–2024 Langenberg Legacy Fellow from the University of Maryland, College Park, created an online resource guide for students considering attending college in the USM, available here.

The Langenberg Lecture Series

The Langenberg Lecture was established in honor of Chancellor Emeritus Donald N. Langenberg to inspire its audience with a new vision for education in this country. More importantly, the Lecture is a call to action, giving motivation and information to those most able to change the way we teach and learn.

Invited speakers include nationally recognized education leaders who may speak on a broad range of issues within the field of education, but they all share in Dr. Langenberg's vision of education as a life-long journey of the human mind. Moreover, they share Dr. Langenberg's perspective that calls upon higher education to see itself as part of a larger, integrated whole.

Each annual lecture is hosted by a different USM campus and is open to the public, while also offering specialized seminars for students and faculty. The Langenberg Lecture also includes the Langenberg Award, which is bestowed upon a student who has shown great promise in and commitment to a career in education.
