CSA TALKS: Li Lu (3/28)
CSA TALKS: Li Lu (CC, CLS, CBS ’96)
Thursday, March 28
8:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Please join us for dessert, conversation, and Q&A with Li Lu (CC, CLS, CBS ’96). Born in China in 1966, Li Lu fled to the U.S. after serving as one of the principal student leaders of the Tiananmen Square demonstrations of 1989. In 1996, he became one of the first students ever to be awarded three Columbia University degrees simultaneously--a B.A. in Economics from Columbia College, a J.D. from Columbia Law School, and an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School. In 1997, he founded Himalaya Capital Management. Mr. Lu is the author of the memoir Moving the Mountain: My Life in China, which recounts his experiences and the events that led to Tiananmen and served as a source for Michael Apted’s documentary of the same title. He is the recipient of many awards and honors, including the Raoul Wallenberg Human Rights Award from the Congressional Human Rights Foundation, the Reebok Human Rights Award and, in 2012, Columbia’s own John Jay award.
