University of Cincinnati celebrates investiture of Dr. Santa J. Ono as its 28th President
The combat performance record of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Tuskegee Airmen contributed to the climate of reforms during the post WW II period. This leveled the playing field allowing minorities to compete for any rank and position in the armed forces, public service, academia and the corporate world. On April 19, 2013, Santa J Ono, a Japanese American, the University of Cincinnati, “with pomp and circumstance, celebrated the formal investiture of Dr. Santa J. Ono as the 28th President of UC.” UC has an enrollment of 42,000 students. JAVA congratulates President Ono on this high achievement.
In the Winter edition of the JAVA Advocate, page 7, there is an article about Dr. Santa J Ono.
In response to outreach by Terry Shima, President Ono offered links to two items related to his investiture speech:
