Dr. Stan Shih Named Chang-Lin Tien Distinguished Visiting Fellow

Program Year: 2009

In recognition of his leadership in business and civic affairs, Dr. Stan Shih, Chief Executive Officer (retired) and Co-Founder of the Acer Group, was the first Chang Lin Tien Distinguished Visiting Fellow. He participated in a wide range of public presentations in California on economic development and trade between Asia and the U.S.

The Asia Foundation Chang-Lin Tien Fellows Program was established to foster exchanges for leaders to meet and interact with their counterparts in Asia and the U.S. The fellowship honors the late Dr. Chang-Lin Tien, former Chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley, for his many accomplishments in science, higher education, and community affairs. It was created to highlight Dr. Tien’s assuming the chairmanship of The Asia Foundation Board of Trustees in 1999.
