The Lois Langland Alumna-In-Residence Endowment Fund

Former students, colleagues, friends, and admirers of Professor Lois Langland have established the Lois Langland Alumna-in-Residence Endowment Fund at Scripps to honor her as an instructor, poet, and mentor extraordinare. The Fund will ensure the permanence of the LLAiR program and will allow the College to extend Dr. Langland’s legacy at Scripps while enriching the resource possibilities that alumnae offer to the Scripps educational mission.

A week’s residency enables the Alumna-in-Residence to work on a chosen project and share the process inside and outside the classroom with the on-campus community. The original goals of the LLAiR program to provide an experience of mutual value to campus and alumnae are met as each resident brings her own unique topic and perspective. The program provides a rich enhancement to the curriculum and exemplifies Dr. Langland’s belief in creativity throughout one’s lifetime.

The goal for the endowment is $100,000, which will provide approximately $5,000 annually to bring a creative and accomplished alumna to campus. Three very generous alumnae have established a Challenge Grant to match dollar-for-dollar all contributions to the endowment up to a total of $25,000.
