Towards the 50th Anniversary


The Chinese University of Hong Kong will celebrate its golden jubilee in 2013. All faculty members, students as well as alumni are actively preparing for the advent of the celebratory events and activities.

The University has grown significantly over the past five decades and is a marvel that can justify a lot of pride. Vested with the mission to combine the tradition with modernity, and to bring together China and the West, nowadays it is an academic community of great vigour and enormous vitality, second to none in Hong Kong, and a major education hub in Asia.

In the year of commemorating the University’s 50th anniversary, the 50th Anniversary Celebration Organizing Committee conceives celebratory activities with the theme ‘Embrace Our Culture‧Empower Our Future’. They include a walkathon, fun fair, conferences, global forum of university presidents, exhibition by famous sculptor Ju Ming, anniversary night, alumni homecoming day, and a gala dinner.

Vice-Chancellor Joseph J.Y. Sung said, ‘The celebratory events will be an occasion for the Chinese University to reiterate its core values and its mission, and to bring to the community’s full view the University’s humanistic spirit which has been its guiding light since the earliest days, its unique collegiate system, and its practical and functional general education programmes. We shall show to the general public what superior minds our campus has nurtured, and what ingenious results they have wrought through years of intensive intellectual endeavours. It is our intention, and our resolve, to demonstrate how the teachers and students of CUHK will shoulder their responsibilities as citizens of the world when the call of benevolent humanism beckons.’

For a foretaste of the celebratory events, please browse here. Participation of all students, staff, and alumni in these events is essential. Please leave us your valuable ideas and suggestions via the website, so that the committee can organize more distinguished and more memorable events in 2013. Ardent alumni are also welcome to subsidize the future development of their alma mater by making online donations via the special website.
