Message from President and Vice-Chancellor

HKBU aspires to become a leading liberal arts University in Asia for the world, delivering academic excellence in a caring, creative and global culture. To achieve this vision, the University is now embarking on a 10-year strategic plan, actively seeking 100 talents from across the world to inspire young minds and extend our societal impact. Our Endowed Chairs Scheme serves as one of the means to attract the world’s greatest minds to HKBU to promote world-class, ground-breaking research and broaden our students’ horizons.

The University established its first Endowed Chair as early as 2006, with the aim of attracting top scholars and retaining our best faculty to open up new research and learning paths for HKBU. It is encouraging to see that with the generosity of supporters who firmly believe in our vision and enthusiasm, a number of Endowed Chairs have been established one by one, and bestowed to HKBU scholars who have advanced the frontier of knowledge for the benefit of humankind.

A university is entrusted with great responsibilities to realise its missions. Its advancement counts on the concerted efforts of its faculty members, staff and supporters. I sincerely thank all benefactors of the Endowed Chairs and look forward to extending our partnership and soliciting support from more individuals and corporations. Together we will attain our goals, create and impart knowledge, nurture future talents and soar to new heights of success.
