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.
