This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first group of Chinese students who enrolled at the University of Minnesota in 1914. To celebrate the long and sustainable engagement between the University and China, they select and recognize 100 Chinese alumni from 1914 to 2014. Thomson Reuters Chief Research and Academic Officer Chang Wang will receiveĀ one of the China 100 Distinguished Chinese Alumni Awards next week, so we sat down with him to talk about what this honor means to him.
