Fridays@3: Frank Wu
Frank H. Wu, President of Queens College, received a BA from the Johns Hopkins University, his JD with honors from the University of Michigan and completed the Management Development Program of the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Wu is a recipient of the John Hope Franklin Award and the Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien Award, among other honors, and recently made history by becoming the first American-born son of Chinese immigrants to be named President at a CUNY institution. Previously he served as chancellor, dean, and then William L. Prosser Distinguished Professor at University of California Hastings College of Law. Previously, he was a faculty member at Howard University.

Wu was appointed by the United States Department of Education to its National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity and by the U.S. Defense Department to the Military Leadership Diversity Commission, which submitted to Congress the report From Representation to Inclusion. Prior to his academic career, Wu held a clerkship with the late U.S. District Judge Frank J. Battisti in Cleveland and practiced law with the firm of Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco. He served on the board of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund. Members of the Committee of 100 elected him the organization's chair and subsequently its first president, a role he held for two and a half years.

Wu is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, and co-author of Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment, which received the single greatest grant from the Civil Liberties Public Education Fund. He blogged regularly for six years at Huffington Post, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, LA Times, Detroit Free Press, San Francisco Chronicle, Chronicle of Higher Education, and National Law Journal. He had a regular column in The Daily Journal, the legal newspaper of California.
