123: Model Minority Theory and Higher Education - with Frank Wu, President, Queens College

This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #39 - In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we talk with Frank Wu, President of Queens College.  As the second Asian-American ever to lead a City University of New York campus, find out why Wu only has eyes on Queens College.  From his time teaching at Howard University, which comes with a very interesting set of circumstances, to the passion Frank has for dispelling Model Minority Theory, Wu takes us on a journey of commitment and focus as he represents Asian-Americans and people of color in the workplace.

Frank H. Wu was named president of Queens College, The City University of New York (CUNY), effective July 2020. Wu previously served as chancellor and dean, and then William L. Prosser Distinguished Professor at University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. Before joining UC Hastings, he was a member of the faculty at Howard University, the nation’s leading historically black college/university (HBCU), for a decade. He served as dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit, and he has been a visiting professor at University of Michigan; an adjunct professor at Columbia University; and a Thomas C. Grey Teaching Fellow at Stanford University. He taught at the Peking University School of Transnational Law in its inaugural year and again a decade later, and at Johns Hopkins University twice.
