Jonathan Langley, Director of STEM and Pre-Medical Professions

--As director of STEM and Pre-Medical Professions, Jonathan Langley helps students interested in STEM fields and those who plan to enter the health professions explore research, study abroad and internship opportunities during their time on campus and prepare for graduate or professional school. 

Langley brings extensive experience to his role. Prior to joining the Honors College staff he worked for eight years in the UA's Office of  Nationally Competitive Awards, where he helped ambitious students pursue funding for tuition, study abroad, graduate school and research opportunities. He coordinated the application process for the Student Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) and supported students applying for STEM-focused awards, such as the Goldwater Scholarship, NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates. In all of these processes, he helped STEM students think not only about immediate success for funding, but also about their long-term trajectory and the ways in which undergraduate opportunities can culminate in success at the post-graduate level. 

Langley also served as an academic advisor in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, where he learned the specific coursework and long-term planning required of students wishing to enter medical school. Before working at the U of A, Langley was an English language instructor at Université du Maine (now Le Mans Université) in Le Mans, France, for the 2011-2012 academic year. Langley earned a Master of Arts  in French Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in English and French, cum laude, at the U of A. 

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. Langley also cross stitches as a hobby, and has won multiple blue ribbons at the Washington Country Fair for his finished pieces.
