Message from the Vice-Chancellor and President
Welcome to the website of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Founded in 1963, we are a university that is as firmly rooted in Chinese culture as it is positioned in modern civilized society. After half a century of growth and development, we have become a comprehensive research university, a regional leader with a global reputation.
Since the inception, we have committed ourselves not only to advancing academic research but also upholding the humanistic culture. A university's role is not only to impart knowledge, but also to groom the moral character of our society's future torchbearers. This, we believe, is the essence of a university and the raison d'être of the Chinese University.
On this website, which has been revamped on the eve of our Golden Jubilee celebrations, you will be kept abreast of exciting news of our students and colleagues and their adventures and achievements, both on and off campus. Feature stories, videos and social media functions have been strengthened to provide more updated, relevant and dynamic contents to all who care for the University and its development. Dedicated webpages have been designed for different stakeholder groups such as prospective students, students, alumni, staff and the media. There is something for everyone.
We invite you to make use of this online platform to become acquainted with CUHK. Better still, we invite you to pay us a visit at our verdant campus between a harbour and the hills.
Joseph J.Y. Sung
Vice-Chancellor and President
