Chair man

Coleman Fung (B.S.’87 IEOR) was honored on campus in December for his endowment of two new chairs in the College of Engineering. In 2011, Fung received the UC Berkeley Foundation’s Chancellor’s Award in recognition of his multifaceted and transformative impact on the Berkeley campus. He is currently serving as co-chair of the Campaign for Berkeley, which has so far raised $2.8 billion toward its goal of $3 billion. In addition to the Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership, Fung helped fund the Chang-Lin Center for East Asian Studies as well as a research center in the economics department. Fung is the founder of OpenLink, a global company that develops financial and risk management software. He is pictured here with his dog, Pearl.
