 Frank Wu Biography

In 2004, Frank H. Wu became the ninth Dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit. From 1995 to 2004, he was the first Asian professor to serve on the law faculty of Howard University, including two years as Clinic Director. He rejoined Howard in 2009-2010. He has been an adjunct professor at Columbia University, a visiting professor at University of Michigan, Georgetown University and Johns Hopkins University, and a teaching fellow at Stanford University.

Wu is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, which entered an immediate second printing in its hardcover edition, and is co-author of Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment. His writing has appeared in such periodicals as The Washington Post, Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Chronicle of Higher Education, Legal Times, and Asian Week.

Wu serves as a Trustee of Gallaudet University, the only university in the nation serving primarily deaf and hard of hearing. He has taught at Deep Springs College, a highly-selective, full-scholarship, all-male school enrolling 26 on a student-run cattle ranch near Death Valley. He served briefly by appointment of the DC Court of Appeals on its Board of Professional Responsibility, which adjudicates attorney discipline matters, and served two terms on Board hearing committees. He was appointed to the Congressionally-mandated Military Leadership Diversity Commission in 2009 and as Chair of the DC Human Rights Commission for 2001-02. Wu joined the Board of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund in 2004, is an elected member of the American Law Institute, and is a fellow of the American Bar Foundation. He is a member of the Committee of 100, a civic group founded by Yo-Yo Ma and I.M. Pei, among others, to promote Asian American political participation. The Asian Pacific Fund awarded Wu the Chang-Li Tien Education Leadership Award in 2008, and in 2007 he received the Trailblazer Award from the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.

Wu was named among the "Top 20 Scholars in the Nation" by Black Issues in Higher Education in its 20th anniversary issue, and was recognized as one of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association's "Best Lawyers Under 40."

His media appearances have included The Oprah Winfrey Show, NOW with Bill Moyers, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, The O'Reilly Factor, Book Notes with Brian Lamb, NPR, Voice of America, and the Fox Movie Channel.

Prior to his academic career, Wu held a clerkship with the late US District Judge Frank J. Battisti in Cleveland. He then joined the law firm of Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco. He received a BA from the Johns Hopkins University and a JD from the University of Michigan.
