Cornell Class of 1969

Our 50th Reunion is June 6-9, 2019

Congratulations, Gloria Lang!

Gloria LangWe are proud that Gloria Lang, our ‘69 classmate (who you may have known as Gloria Jacobsen) has recently been awarded the Frank H. T. Rhodes Exemplary Alumni Service Award. Her official commendation covers her several areas of Cornell activity:

“When Gloria looks at Cornell, she sees more than a university; she sees a community of people of various ages and backgrounds, all of whom have something to contribute throughout their lives. As she has said: ‘When Cornell becomes a part of your life as an alumna or alumnus, you continue to grow. You have a relationship not only with an institution but with the generations that have made it up.’

A dedicated mentor to students and young alumni, especially in her career as a textile executive in the Home Fashions Industry, Gloria has made outstanding contributions to Cornell, particularly to the President’s Council of Cornell Women (PCCW). She first joined PCCW in 1993 and was named a member emerita in 2012. Throughout her tenure, she has held leadership roles on the Annual Meeting Planning, Development and Archives Committees. As a member of the Steering Committee, she has provided essential guidance and leadership to the last five PCCW administrations. She represents PCCW as a member of the Committee on Alumni Trustee Nominations

Gloria has enjoyed being a member of the Cornell University Council (CUC) of which she is now a life member. She is completing her term as vice chair of the CUC Development Committee.

Her introduction to Cornell volunteer service was a term on the Dean’s Advisory Council for the College of Human Ecology, and she served her class as a member of the 40th and 45th Reunion campaign committees. She currently serves on the Cornell Alumni Trustee Nominations Committee. With Cornell’s presence in NYC at Weill Cornell Medical College and Cornell Tech’s Campus on Roosevelt Island, Cornell is even more a part of her life.”
