HKBU hosts Anniversary Founders’ Day Reception

浸大舉辦年度校慶酒會

HKBU held the Anniversary Founders’ Day Reception on 9 March to celebrate the University’s 62nd birthday. The event provided an opportunity for more than 300 guests, including its Council and Court members, honorary doctorate and fellowship recipients, government officials, consuls general, staff, students, alumni, supporters and friends of the University, to understand more about HKBU’s latest development.
 
Officiating at the Reception were Senior Counsel Mr Wong Yan-lung, Chairman of the Council and the Court of HKBU Mr Cheng Yan-kee, and President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Roland Chin.
       
In his welcome remarks, Mr Cheng Yan-kee thanked the audience at the Reception for their support which led to the University’s many accomplishments. He said the HKBU founders identified the benefits of delivering academic excellence in a caring, creative, and global culture. Six decades on, HKBU re-emphasises these qualities in a refreshed vision through the Strategic Plan which charts the University’s direction in the next 10 years: To be a leading liberal arts University in Asia for the world delivering academic excellence in a caring, creative global culture. Mr Cheng gave an overview of the varied endeavours of HKBU, highlighting the academic, research and service projects that have gained commendation, recognition and support.
 
In his address, Mr Wong Yan-lung encouraged the younger generation to seek justice within the law. He said that there is a significant difference between the fulfilment of individual rights and the achievement of justice, fairness and equality. If one is genuinely concerned about justice, fairness, and inequality, one will work hard to embrace respect for others and the protection of others’ rights as opposed to the mere assertion of one’s own rights.

Professor Roland Chin said in his speech that a university is “blindfolded” like Lady Justice so that a university will maintain “political colour-blindness” and implement its institutional policies without any political interference. He said the University will protect its members’ freedom of expression and the academic sector within the law without destroying the rights of other individuals.

At the Reception, the University presented the fifth Distinguished Alumni Award to four alumni in recognition of their outstanding business, professional or scholastic achievements. They are: Mr Ronnie Cheng (Education Studies); Dr Eddie Chui  (Chemistry, Chinese Medicine); Ms Kitty Lun (Communication) and Mr Patrick Siu  (Geography, Communication).

In addition, Chairman Cheng and Professor Chin expressed their gratitude and presented HKBU Foundation certificates to supporters who made significant contributions to the University.

浸大於3月9日舉行校慶酒會,慶祝大學成立62周年,超過300位嘉賓應邀出席,包括校董會及諮議會成員、浸大榮譽博士及院士、政府官員、駐港領事、教職員、學生、校友與各界支持者及友好,藉此了解大學的最新發展。

校慶酒會邀得資深大律師黃仁龍先生、校董會暨諮議會主席鄭恩基先生和校長錢大康教授主禮。
 
鄭恩基主席致歡迎辭時,感謝蒞臨校慶酒會的嘉賓,他們的支持讓大學取得不少驕人成就。他表示,創校先賢確立浸大在關愛、創意和國際化的氛圍中發揮學術卓越的理念。經過60多年,浸大新的十年策略發展計劃再次肯定這理念,並將帶領大學成為一所領先亞洲、立足世界的博雅大學。鄭先生概述了浸大多項在教學、研究及社會服務範疇上力臻至善,並得到表彰、認同和支持的卓越成就。

黃仁龍先生致辭時,呼籲年輕人在法律內而非法律外爭取公義。他表示,任何真正關心公義、公平和平等的人,必努力嘗試尊重其他人的權利,而非沉浸於個人權利或理想。

錢大康教授致辭時表示,大學如同正義女神般蒙著雙眼,維持「政治上色盲」,不容許政治偏見影響校政判斷。大學會以保障學術自由和言論自由的原則與傳統為指引,不受外間影響,並會持守符合法律、不損他人權利的原則。

大學同場頒發第五屆傑出校友獎予四位校友,表揚他們的卓越商業、專業或學術成就。他們是鄭基恩先生(教育學)、崔紹漢博士(化學、中醫學)、倫潔瑩女士(傳理學)及蕭潮順先生(地理學、傳理學)。有關得獎校友的簡介,可瀏覽網頁:http://hkbuenews.hkbu.edu.hk/?t=enews_details/2221
