C-100 members Carter Tseng, Charlie Sie, and Jeremy Wu represented the Committee at the Tien Chang-Lin Symposium in Wuhan on June 28.
The Tien Chang-Lin Symposium commemorates the late Chang-lin Tien, a founding member of the Committee of 100 and the seventh Chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley. Tien was the first Asian American to head a major university in the United States. In 2010, the city of Wuhan, Tien’s birthplace, established an annual symposium in recognition of his accomplishments as a scientist and educator. Over one hundred people participated in this year’s symposium. Sie spoke about innovation, and Tseng gave a presentation on human capital. Wu read a letter of greetings from C-100 Chairman Dominic Ng and presented findings from the 2012 C-100 U.S.-China Public Perceptions Opinion Survey.
