Bastyr University has announced David Lang as the newest member of the institution's Board of Trustees.
Lang is executive director of the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, the collaborative body and collective voice for 25 cultural institutions in San Diego's historic Balboa Park. The organization supports the work of these cultural institutions' 500 trustees, 2,500 staff and 7,000 volunteers in service to 6.7 million visitors every year.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome David Lang to the Board of Trustees, as he is someone who understands and embraces the ideals for which our University stands," said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD.
Prior to joining the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, Lang was director of government affairs for Houston-based KSA Industries, the parent company to a diverse group of businesses that includes the NFL's Tennessee Titans. He also served as vice president for development for the Sigma Chi Fraternity Foundation in Evanston, Ill.
"I look forward to working with the Board of Trustees to provide Bastyr University guidance in successfully meeting its goals and objectives," Lang said. "I am a firm believer in the power of natural medicine and its integration with conventional medicine, and believe Bastyr University is at the forefront of this integration."
