Lang Accepted Into The Institute for Responsible Citizenship’s Washington Program

Psychology major Justin Lang has been accepted into the Washington Program of the Institute for Responsible Citizenship.  The institute website indicates that it "selects some of the nation’s best and brightest African American male college students to participate" after reviewing "hundreds of applications."  The program runs the first Sunday in June through the last Saturday in July and is a two summer commitment. During the first summer, students focus on classes, internships, meetings with inspirational leaders, and bonding with the other young men in their cohort. Professional development, character development, mentorship, and graduate school preparation are priorities for the second summer, although students still work full-time at internships. Housing is provided by the Institute, and if students are not placed in a paid internship, they will receive stipends to help cover living expenses.

Joining other undergraduates from universities such as Harvard, Yale, and New York University and others, Justin will participate in a full-time internship over two consecutive summers.  This summer he will be interning with the Children’s Defense Fund.
