This e-newsletter documents 80-20's successful effort to break the
GLASS CEILING above us in universities.
[A] Documenting 80-20's Contribution
In Breaking the Glass Ceiling in Higher Ed
o 80-20 gathered the data to construct and repeatedly publicized the
following chart, e.g. a full page Washington Post public Service ad.
The chart shows a very low GLASS CEILING over Asian Ams:
o Using this chart, 80-20 induced President Obama to promise
in the 2008 presidential election to help us break the GLASS CEILING.
Click on http://www.80-20initiative.net/news/preselect2008_obama.asp
to see Pres. Obama's written & signed promise to 80-20 Educational
Foundation in this regard.
o After Pres. Obama was elected, 80-20 turned Pres. Obama's promise
into the enforcement of a current law by the Labor Department on behalf
of Asian Ams. See a written promise by the Labor Department to enforce
Exec. Order 11246 in order to break the GALSS CEILING over us in work
places. Click on http://www.80-20initiative.net/news/preselect2008_obama.asp
[B] Proof that the Glass Ceiling in Higher Ed is Breaking
See the names of the 6 Asian Ams Presidents/provosts appointed to BIG
universities since Pres. Obama was elected.
o Jim Yong Kim, a Korean Am, President, Dartmouth College, PA,
appointed in 2009, the first Asian Am. Ivy School president;
o Wallace D. Loh, a Chinese Am, President, Univ. of Maryland, main
campus, appointed in 2010, the 2nd Asian Am president of a large
state university. (Chang-lin Tien, Chancellor, UC, Berkeley, was the
first. Tien was also one of the 6 founders of 80-20);
o Conrado Gempesaw, a Filipino Am, Provost, Miami University, Ohio,
appointed in 2010, an 80-20 member
o Phyllis Wise, a Chinese Am, Chancellor, Univ. of Illinois, main campus,
appointed in 2011, 3rd Asian Am president of a large state university;

o Satish K. Tripathi, an Indian Am, President, State Univ. of NY, Buffalo,

The above 6 appointments in the last 3 years are more than all
the top administrators jobs in big universities that America has ever
accorded Asian Am academics in the the history of America!
[C] You Decide If You Want to Keep 80-20 Alive

the issue of college admissions? You decide.

GLASS CEILING & its effectiveness? You decide.
