Editor's Note

University intellectuals have a solemn mission to disseminate knowledge, to instil values, to counsel, and to honour their social responsibilities. For those intellectuals residing on campus, that mission is on them 24/7. There are teachers who have been hostel wardens for over 20 years and treat the resident students as their own offspring. There are teachers who forgo the air-conditioned comfort of their offices and bring students to faraway lands to help local communities. The interviews of Prof. Cheung Yuet-wah and Prof. Clement So, and the inaugural lecture of Prof. Edward Ng, Yao Ling Sun Professor of Architecture, allow us a glimpse into the hearts of these CUHK teachers.
