Citizen University: Eric Liu

Eric Liu wants us to find our civic voice, and he’s pushing us to look beyond the ballot box. The founder and CEO of Citizen University, an organization dedicated to fostering a stronger culture of citizenship, Liu explores the broad field of civic participation - politics, business, arts and culture, technology, and beyond. Liu has explored transcultural experience as a first-generation American in "A Chinaman’s Chance" and "The Accidental Asian: Notes of a Native Speaker." He is a veteran of the Clinton White House, a regular contributor to CNN, and a prominent voice in contemporary debates about how America can reimagine its civic ideals.
