In summer 2010, following a national search, Frank H. Wu began service as Chancellor and Dean of UC Hastings.
A law professor and former dean, as well as author of leading works on Asian Americans, Dean Wu practiced law in the San Francisco office of the Morrison & Foerster law firm prior to his academic career.
Dean Wu has offered a three-point plan for the future of UC Hastings.
The strategic plan for UC Hastings, especially the decision to make a significant reduction to the J.D. enrollment and implement high-quality on-line legal education, attracted accolades nationwide during the 2011-12 academic year, and other leading schools soon followed in making similar decisions.
