In 2019, UM System President and MU Chancellor Mun Y. Choi was awarded the Chang-Lin Tien Leadership in Education Award, which honors an Asian American and Pacific Islander who has achieved significant academic accomplishments and demonstrates the potential to advance to the highest leadership levels in higher education.
The honor included a $10,000 grant to establish a systemwide Chang-Lin Tien Scholarship Fund to support exceptional, civic-minded students. Choi recently selected 12 scholarship recipients from across the UM System — including five students from MU. The students are:
- Ryan Janikowski
