Alumnus Larry J. Lawrence '69, '71BUS was one of 10 Columbia University alumni honored at the Alumni Medalists Gala on October 16, 2010. Nearly 300 Columbia alumni and friends gathered in Low Library to honor the 2010 Alumni Medalists, who were recognized for their service to the University. The Medal, first awarded in 1933, is the highest honor the University bestows on her alumni and recognizes alumni for distinguished service of 10 years or more to the University.

He was also co-chair of the 2009 GS Reunion Committee.
Lawrence was also recently appointed to the board of the Columbia Investment Management Company which oversees the management of Columbia's endowment funds.
