According to the American Council on Education, there is a noticeable lack of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in leadership positions at U.S. colleges and universities. Although AAPIs lead other minority groups in the percentage of full-time tenured faculty, according to ACE's 2012 report, just 2 percent of chief academic officer positions and 3 percent of deanships are held by AAPIs.
"Re-Examined: Education's Model Minority Myth" is part of "NBC Asian America Presents...," a digital video channel that will feature original content centered around themes and voices found in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
Look for new "Re-Examined" videos published on Tuesdays in August. Episodes can also be watched on NBC Asian America's Facebook page, NBC News' official YouTube channel, and the NBC News app available on mobile devices, Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.
