Hong Kong lacks natural resources – it is the people here that make it an international city. To maintain the territory’s competitiveness, cultivating talent is our top priority. In recent years, HKBU has dedicated a lot of resources to recruiting top scholars from around the world and establishing six new interdisciplinary research laboratories. Certainly, these initiatives are worth our support, as they can bring more international experience and knowledge to the HKBU campus.

Dr. Ronald Lu Vice-Chairman
Board of Governors, HKBU Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic came as a complete surprise and got everyone into a panic. It is gratifying to learn that HKBU, with its caring spirit and the expertise of our faculty members, has spared no efforts in helping the community overcome this challenge. The University also cares about its graduates and assists them in looking for jobs. This pandemic of the century has reminded us that we are all citizens of the globe. We should all pitch in to see us through this difficult time.

Apart from the pandemic, the world is facing a variety of other challenges including Decarbonisation, Digitalisation and Densification. These are issues that governments around the world will have to cope with in the near future. Through its Talent100 initiative, HKBU has been actively recruiting outstanding scholars. I sincerely hope that they will help us nurture more visionary young people who will provide novel solutions to these problems.

HKBU is implementing its Institutional Strategic Plan 2018-2028 at full speed and requiring considerable resources. Thanks to the contributions of our unswerving supporters, the University is able to groom our students to develop a global vision. The Eighth Matching Grant Scheme and the Research Matching Grant Scheme launched by the Government in 2019 have also enabled us to secure additional resources to enhance our teaching and research facilities, helping us fulfil our aspirations.

As the Chinese saying goes, “For a one-year plan, you can sow grains; for a ten-year plan, you’d better plant a tree; for a life-long plan, the best thing to do is to educate people.” After celebrating its first decade, the HKBU Foundation will continue to give its full support to the University, and its Whole Person Education in particular, helping HKBU to scale new heights.

Professor Sunny H.K. Wong Chairman
Alumni Committee, HKBU Foundation

In response to a bleak economic outlook, HKBU has launched Project SEED as timely help to graduates seeking jobs. As soon as the project was introduced, many alumni not only offered employment or internship opportunities to HKBU students, but also coached them in interview and resume-writing skills. We treasure very much their care and support for the juniors, demonstrating a strong spirit of unity among HKBU alumni.

Ms. Chloe Suen Co-Chairman
Young Entrepreneur Committee, HKBU Foundation

Although students’ campus life is greatly affected by the pandemic, many young people have found creative ways to move on – they perform music via an online platform or they create video resumes to help find jobs. This convinces me that what young people need the most is room for their creativity to thrive. Hence I sincerely hope that you will join us in supporting our future leaders and developing a diverse society.

Mr. Ivan S.K. Wong Co-Chairman
Young Entrepreneur Committee, HKBU Foundation

To address the pressing issues now facing the world, we need professionals in a variety of disciplines to join hands and work as a team. The essence of Whole Person Education is to help students become worthy and ethical persons who are accountable to themselves, their families and society at large. The Young Entrepreneur Committee will continue to do its utmost to enable HKBU students to broaden their horizons and acquire overseas experience, thereby opening up more opportunities for them.

Dr. Clement Chen, GBS, JP Chairman
The Council and the Court, HKBU

Thanks to the tremendous support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Jockey Club Campus of Creativity has commenced construction work for completion in 2024. It is the first complex in Hong Kong that combines teaching, research, co-creation and residential education. This project will enable the University to prepare young people with the innovative impulses and creative thinking that the 21st century demands, and also allow us to realise our goals of achieving research excellence.

Mrs. Lily W.L. Chan Director of University Advancement
Secretary-General of Hong Kong Baptist University Foundation

The whole world has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, thanks to the unwavering support of our friends in these difficult times, the HKBU Foundation was still able to achieve record-breaking results in fundraising and obtaining matching funds. Every donation is an endorsement of HKBU’s achievements and its aspiration to make HKBU a world-leading liberal arts university.
