Clarification on matters discussed with student representatives

浸大對校長錢大康與學生代表會面內容的澄清

A spokesman of HKBU said President Roland Chin had a meeting with several student representatives recently on a number of topics. In response to the Students’ Union’s post on social media today, the spokesman wishes to clarify about the matters discussed in the meeting.

In the meeting, Professor Chin reiterated that the University welcomes discussions on various topics on campus, provided that all the discussions encompass different views and every person has an equal opportunity to express his or her opinions. A rational and legal way of expression should be safeguarded in the discussions and illegal actions would not be accepted.

Regarding the democracy walls on campus, Professor Chin mentioned that they are managed by the Students’ Union and all the posts should conform to the established regulations for posting. The University will request the Students’ Union to remove those posts that are found to be illegal or involve defamation, personal attack, or damage personal dignity and individual rights. Under special circumstances, University staff will remove these posts after informing the Students’ Union.

For statements issued by the University, Professor Chin said the University will communicate with relevant stakeholders when preparing official statements on important issues. The views of students will be taken into consideration for issues concerning students. Decisions will be made to provide the utmost benefit to the University as a whole and not solely at the request of particular stakeholders.

於會面時,錢校長表示大學校園歡迎不同議題的討論,但強調所有討論必須容納不同意見、要有公平的發言權、並且必須理性、合法,不能有任何違法行為。

至於民主牆,錢校長當時表示,大學民主牆由學生會管理,但所有張貼物品必須符合既定的張貼守則,如有任何違法、誹謗、人身攻擊、損害他人尊嚴,剝奪他人權利的物品,大學會要求學生會自行清除,或在特殊情況下,知會學生會後由校方清除。

至於以大學名義發表聲明,錢校長當時表示:大學就重要議題發表聲明時,會積極與相關持份者溝通。如有關議題與學生息息相關,會樂意考慮同學的意見,最終以大學整體的考慮為決定的依據,而不會只依從部份持份者的要求。
