On March 7, C-100 and the Asia Pacific Fund co-sponsored the second annual Chang-Lin Tien Education Leadership Awards ceremony in San Francisco. The awards honor the legacy of University of California at Berkeley Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien, the first Asian American to head a major American research university and a founding member of C-100.
The program expanded from California to a national scale this past year, and the number of candidates more than doubled. Winners were Frank H. Wu, Dean of the Wayne State University Law School, and Norman C. Tien, Dean of the Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. The award includes an unrestricted $10,000 honorarium.
