President Tania Tetlow Offers '10 Tips to Shape Your Presidential Voice'
In an opinion piece for Higher Ed Dive, President Tetlow shared advice for university presidents on "navigating the complexities of speaking out"—from stepping up in times of crisis to offering empathy when there are no easy answers.
On a keynote panel with presidents Vince Rougeau of the College of the Holy Cross and Seth Bodnar of the University of Montana, President Tetlow spoke about the importance of authenticity when communicating with staff and faculty, as well as “letting them know you’ve got the goods” and “resisting the temptation of unrelenting cynicism.”
The center is among the first in the country to focus on the intersection of the Asian American experience with legal studies. “With very few exceptions, Asian American legal history has largely been ignored in law school and in other education,” said Senior U.S. Circuit Court Judge Denny Chin, LAW ’78. “A common refrain when we teach and talk about Asian American legal history is, ‘I didn’t know that.’ And, sadly, the violence against Asian Americans is nothing new.”
President Tetlow joined Vincent Rougeau, president of the College of the Holy Cross, to talk about being “first” on the Future U Podcast, hosted by Jeff Selingo and Michael Horn. Both trained attorneys, they are the first lay presidents to lead their institutions. Tetlow is also the first woman to lead Fordham and Rougeau is Holy Cross’ first Black president.
