Message from Chairman of the Council and the Court

Just as talents are invaluable assets of society and major drivers of progress, bright scholars are the cornerstone of a distinguished university. Since its inception, HKBU has taken pride in its strong cohort of brilliant scholars who persevere in their quest for excellence. They have stayed at the forefront of their fields, to conduct innovative research, and to nurture students to become future leaders who exemplify the caring spirit of our community.

With the generous benefactions from our supporters, the University has established a number of Endowed Chairs for various fields of academic endeavour in which we excel in order to recruit world-class scholars who can strengthen our team. These eminent professors will lead us in the search for knowledge and facilitate knowledge transfer, thereby consolidating HKBU’s standing in teaching and research and producing a significant impact on society.

In 2017, HKBU is formulating a blueprint for its development over the next ten years. Numerous entrepreneurs, charitable foundations, social leaders and alumni have rendered their support for the Endowed Chairs Scheme. Their contributions have created favourable climate for the University’s long-term advancement. The establishment of each endowed chair signifies the partnership between the University and our supporters. We hope that more people who share our vision will join us and provide support for this meaningful scheme that will make the best use of our knowledge and expertise for the benefit of humankind.
