Dr. Langsam joined the faculty in 1964 and was one of the pioneer faculty members who a short time later became the faculty of the embryonic IUPUI. Throughout the course of a forty-year career and beyond, she has contributed to every academic and administrative aspect of IUPUI’s growth and development into a major university. Particularly noteworthy is her service as Director of the IUPUI Honors Program for fifteen years.
