Dr. Joseph C.T. Lee, GBS, OStJ, JP Vice-Chairman
Board of Governors, HKBU Foundation

I am privileged to witness the continuous advancement of HKBU and the HKBU Foundation. The University has been brought forward with the concerted efforts of students, faculty and staff members, and the high standing that the University enjoys today would not have been possible without the genuine support from the community at large. It is my wish to see the continued growth of the University, especially as one of the pioneers that excel in the fields of character development and positive social impact.

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

For over six decades, HKBU has stood at the foot of the Lion Rock, perfectly embodying the spirit of Hong Kong people by tackling countless challenges while promoting our vision and launching a series of innovative initiatives through the University’s various disciplines and research projects. This is the reason why HKBU is worthy of our support. The University is now fully implementing its programme of internationalisation. Our goal being to broaden our students’ horizons by giving them ever more opportunities to learn about and experience cultures abroad. We are proud that the Hong Kong Baptist University Foundation plays a vital role in enhancing the University’s excellence by providing the requisite funding for its drive to enable students to become global citizens.

A 60-year journey in education is certainly not an easy path. Since its establishment, HKBU has taken on challenges, embraced the spirit of caring as well as upheld the ethos of whole person education. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the HKBU community and the tremendous support of the community leaders, the University is able to strive for excellence in both teaching and research. I wish HKBU will continue to foster innovation, promote internationalisation and nurture more young leaders of tomorrow.

The Council and the Court, HKBU

The social, political and economic landscape of the world, as well as that of Hong Kong, is changing with increasing complexity and rapidity.  The impacts of technological innovations and advances present both challenges and opportunities.  These have to be proactively managed in order to ensure that our students are fully prepared to play roles as relevant, competent and responsible leaders of the future.

With our clarity of vision now assured, as laid out by the President, the University community is gathering momentum in forging ahead on its journey of transformation.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to our donors and supporters, who have contributed so much to the positive development of the University, and we count on your continuous partnership to enable the successful transformation of HKBU to become an even greater force for good.

Dr. Simon S.M. Suen, BBS, JP Co-Chairman
Entrepreneur Committee, HKBU Foundation

The prosperity of a society relies on its standard of education, while the rise and fall of a nation depends on its culture. University education nurtures talents for economic development and is the driving force for the sustainable advancement of society. Through culture, young people can gain a deeper understanding of their heritage as well as enhance their ethnic identity and sense of belonging. Through the platform of the HKBU Foundation, we look forward to garnering support from visionary benefactors whose contributions enable the University to uphold its mission of whole person education and promote the Chinese heritage by bridging the gap between East and West.

Mr. William W.C. Leung, SBS, JP Chairman
Alumni Committee, HKBU Foundation

Over the past 60 years, HKBU has educated 100,000 graduates. Our cherished alumni are not only the “face” and “brand” of the University but also the reason why the University exists. While the University will ensure that undergraduates receive the highest possible standard of education, the Alumni Committee under the HKBU Foundation will spare no effort in drawing support from senior alumni who can assist our young graduates on their road to success. The more successful alumni that HKBU has, the stronger the alumni force will be. And by working together to cement the bonds between the University and the alumni, we will have an ever stronger alma mater. 

Mr. Cheng Yan Kee, BBS, JP Chairman
The Council and the Court, HKBU

At the heart of HKBU’s vision are the provision of whole person education and the advancement of knowledge through research and scholarship. Over the past 60 years, together with the immense commitment and diligence of our staff, we are delighted to see that our students can benefit and contribute to society and to the world at large.

We will continue to respond to the challenges of the times, focusing on creating value and upholding the spirit of innovation as we take the University to new heights. 

Mr. C.K. Yeung Associate Vice-President (Engagement), HKBU

A bold start-up we were 61 years ago. That was when a group of Chinese and American Christian educators decided to create a university out of nothing. Even by today’s and tomorrow’s standard it was a visionary and daring start-up.

Like all bold start-ups, HKBU went through many challenges, such as running out of money for our loyal teachers’ salary who stood by our noble ideals without pay during the most testing times.

Today, we are in the top 300 among the 26,000 universities worldwide, i.e. among the 1.1% top universities in the world. Our students thrive because of you – our donors who share the same conviction and passion as our daring founding fathers. You are visionary donors. 

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

HKBU aspires to become a leading liberal arts University in Asia for the world delivering academic excellence in a caring, creative and global culture. The University is formulating a new Strategic Plan for 2018-2028, which will offer the best student experience, internationalise our teaching and research, and heighten our impact on Hong Kong, the nation, the region and the world. The success in fulfilling our aspirations will count on your wise counsel and staunch support in the years ahead.
