Dr. Yuhsien Wu


Dr. Wu is an expert in student development and mentors students globally, including students from Harvard University.  She serves as a keynote and panel speaker at various conferences to discuss topics such as global competence, international education, and race relations in America. She also works closely with a team of Harvard Medical School professionals to promote mental wellness for international as well as Asian-American students.


With a Ph.D. in business management from University of Missouri specializing in interpersonal communication and a master's degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education, Dr. Wu brings high quality educational programs to students in the Washington DC metropolitan area and beyond.

Dr. Wu worked as a senior manager at a New York Stock Exchange education company, and gained an in-depth understanding about the American secondary education system. As a former business professor, she has an intimate knowledge about the American higher education system. Because of her first-hand experiences teaching at the college level and managing people in an organization, she understands the factors that are needed for someone to not only succeed academically, but also professionally. Therefore, she co-founded the Veritas Education in 2010 to promote deep learning. She also co-founded Veritas Education Leaders, a non-profit organization, in 2015 to close the achievement gap.
