40 under 40

Frank Wu, 37, and the youngest dean in the history of the WSU Law School, was named to receive the business newspaper's "40 under 40" award. He wants WSU Law School to achieve top 50 ranking. His book "Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White" made him a popular public speaker. He recalled his experience with childhood discrimination, and told how he considered a newspaper career to help "change the world," but later decided a law degree would prepare him to become involved in civil rights. He plans to host public discussions on trials in the media spotlight, to increase the number of merit scholarships and to improve the teacher-to-student ratio.
