In many respects it was a milestone in the history of the University. For the first time in twenty-four years after the University's inception, a new member was added to its collegiate system, a system that is unique to The Chinese University of Hong Kong among other tertiary institutions in Hong Kong. It signified the affirmation and reinforcement of a whole-person approach to education that the University takes great pride in. The constituent colleges look after student-orientated teaching and promote general education programmes and foster closer student-teacher interactions. Through ShawCollege, the concept of college education has found fuller and richer realization. The establishment of a fourth college was also reflective of the physical growth of the University. When the three original colleges came together on the Sha Tin campus in the early 1970s, each was designed with a capacity of about 1,700 students. Such a limit was soon outgrown in the mid-1980s and college facilities were in the danger of being overstretched. The timely establishment of Shaw College not only provided the much needed amenities for students, it also opened up new opportunities for improving the quality of education offered by the University. It is hard to imagine how the University could have properly looked after its present enrolment of over 10,000 undergraduates without Shaw . The youngest among our four colleges, Shaw is still building a tradition that it can boast to be its own. But in the last 10 years, much has already been done by its teachers and students to enrich our campus culture, and much has been achieved in academic studies and research to bring accolades to the University. The University as a whole has benefited from this extra dimension contributed by Shaw College. None of the above would have been possible without the clear vision of the University leadership a decade ago and of the Patron of the College Sir Run Run Shaw, who made a generous donation of HK$110 million to endow the college which has been named after him. On this happy occasion of the 10th anniversary of Shaw College, let me thank Sir Run Run once again for his staunch suppport to the University and his firm commitment to the expansion of higher education in Hong Kong. Let me also congratulate members of Shaw College, past and present, on their important contribution towards making The Chinese University of Hong Kong a great university. I wish them continued success in their endeavours. Arthur K.C. Li Vice-Chancellor 李國章校長之賀辭 中大通訊 第一二一期 一九九八年二月十九日
