Associate Vice Chancellor and Registrar, Purdue University Fort Wayne

Chris Huang is the  Associate Vice Chancellor and Registrar, Purdue University Fort Wayne. He has served as a registrar since 2006 at both private and public institutions. Chris’ career in higher education began as an admissions counselor at this alma mater, Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He holds a Master of Arts in Communication from Purdue Northwest. Since 2013, Chris has been an active member of the Illinois Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers holding several leadership positions: District Chair, Professional Activities Officer and President.

Since 2017, Chris has been involved with AACRAO’s Asian and Pacific-Islander Caucus.

Why he joined: "As a Taiwanese immigrant, the value of education was instilled in me by my parents. As a person of color, there have been times in my personal and professional lives where I’ve felt like an outsider or that I didn’t belong.

As a member of the AAPI Caucus, I hope to connect with colleagues through the association to share our experiences and support each other in our work and create a sense of belonging among peers. This includes mentoring, sharing our successes and raising awareness about access and equity for our AAPI colleagues and students. It was my honor to serve the AAPI caucus as chair from 2018-2020. I also had the opportunity to serve as Illinois AACRAO’s first AAPI president in 2018.

I want to encourage AAPI colleagues to be involved in leadership positions at the state and regional levels and at the national level, so that our voices can be heard."
