2 聚焦凝鏡:中大金禧紀實 CUHK: Focus at 50 序言 Foreword 2013年是香港中文大學五十周年,本書以圖冊形式輯錄了主要的金禧慶祝活動,我很高興能在 此提筆寫序。回顧這年,我看到大家戮力同心,各項活動成績斐然,確是滿有奇蹟的一年。 我十分感謝一眾協助籌劃及推行慶祝活動的師生、同事、校友和中大友好,以及積極參與的公 眾人士,也感謝傳媒廣泛報道相關活動,並廣播不少校園中感動人心的人物和故事。 五十年標誌着一個新階段的開始,在絢爛的慶祝過後,正是時候實踐我們在教學、研究和服務 方面的目標。在未來的日子,讓中大每位成員都重申承諾、整頓決心、竭盡所能,使中大繼續層 樓更上,貢獻社群。 香港中文大學校長 沈祖堯 It is my tremendous pleasure to write in this booklet, which chronicles in pictures the major activities marking the fiftieth anniversary of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Looking back, the year 2013 was indeed a veritable annus mirabilis , with the dedicated efforts of so many converging to work wonders, and create the great success that is faithfully recorded in this publication. I am greatly indebted to all the students, teachers, colleagues, alumni and friends who were involved in the planning and execution of the celebration events, and members of the community at large who responded so well to our Golden Jubilee through enthusiastic participation in many of the activities that were open to the public. I am also deeply grateful to the media for their extensive and favourable coverage, and for the many moving stories about life and people on campus that they carried in their columns. ‘At the end of a rainbow, there is a pot of gold,’ so the saying goes. After the vibrant colours of the Jubilee celebrations, our pot of gold will be the realization of our many targets and objectives in teaching, in research, and in service. In the days to come, let everyone of us at the Chinese University renew our pledge, strengthen our resolve and put in our best effort, to bring the University to higher planes of achievement, and greater benefit to the people it is destined to serve. Joseph J.Y. Sung Vice-Chancellor and President The Chinese University of Hong Kong
