Donald E. Gibson, Ph.D., dean of Fairfield University’s Charles F. Dolan School of Business, said it is a great honor to have Mr. Langone among the group of highly accomplished business leaders who have delivered the annual lecture. “Mr. Langone, a visionary in the world of business, will be sharing his insights and ideas at this much anticipated event,” Dr. Gibson said. “Those attending the lecture will undoubtedly gain from hearing about how he judges financial risk, how he chooses people and ideas to invest in, and his ideas about business trends of the future.”

He is also chairman of the Trustees of New York University Medical Center. In April 2008, the medical center was renamed the NYU Langone Medical Center as a result of Mr. Langone and his wife Elaine’s generous gift.  He was a member of the Bucknell University Board of Trustees where he served as chairman of its nominating committee, its endowment and as a member of its executive committee.

In addition, he is on the board of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, The Ronald McDonald House of New York, The Medal of Honor Foundation, Horatio Alger Society Foundation, and the Harlem Children’s Zone and he is chairman of its charter school, Promise Academy.
