The Laureates will be honored on Oct. 21, Legacy Laureate Day at Pitt, with a by-invitation-only dinner, and they will participate that evening in "Pathway to Professions," a career networking event for Pitt alumni.

Pitt's Legacy Laureate program was launched in 2000. Hilda Pang Fu is one of this year's Legacy Laureates.

Hilda Pang Fu has amassed a distinguished public service record as founder, leader and supporting player in regional development, violence prevention, nonprofit media, and education.

In addition, she is a remarkably effective and dedicated civic volunteer for many organizations and academic institutions in Western Pennsylvania and, in 1999, was recognized by Pittsburgh Magazine as one of the "100 Pittsburghers of the Century." Currently, she serves as Director of Summer Programs for Point Park University and is on the advisory boards of the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence and the Sara Fine Institute for Interpersonal Behavior and Technology in the School of Information Sciences. Fu, who earned the Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history at the University of Hong Kong and the Master of Public Management degree at Carnegie Mellon University, received the Master of Library Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1976.
