On 9 December 2008, the Council of the University resolved that a foundation, in the name of the “Hong Kong Baptist University Foundation”, be established to strengthen the University’s capability to extend its support base for the development of HKBU. Ten years have passed and the HKBU Foundation has well and truly lived up to our expectations.
Since its inception, the Foundation has served as a solid bedrock for the University, opening up numerous opportunities for our students as well as our faculty colleagues. The Foundation undertakes the mission of securing support and resources for University initiatives on many fronts including teaching and learning, academic research, campus development, scholarships and bursaries for students, internationalisation and community service. The impact made by the Foundation has been remarkable indeed.
On behalf of the University, I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to all Foundation members. Thanks to your steadfast support that many of our initiatives have been made possible. The University rolled out its 10-year Institutional Strategic Plan in 2017. Additional resources are required to fulfil our aspirations, and in the drive to obtain this support the HKBU Foundation is playing an ever more critical role. I sincerely hope that more friends will walk together with us in the next ten years to enable HKBU to soar to new heights.
