In 2010, Cal U officials awarded Langley the Million Dollar Award in recognition of his generation of more than a million dollars in grants for the school. 

His experience also includes serving as dean of Brevard College in North Carolina and as division chair of general studies at Brunswick College in Georgia, where he also served as retention coordinator and division chair of natural sciences and mathematics.
