Innovation Commons


CityU Innovation Commons - Student Success


City University of Hong Kong has incorporated a new curriculum, called Discovery-enriched Curriculum across the campus programs since 2012.  Under DEC, we encourage students to create new knowledge, communicate it, curate it and cultivate it to benefit society.  The Innovation Commons is established collaboratively by the Library, the School of Law, the Knowledge Transfer Office, and the Education Development and Gateway Education.  It serves as a one-stop resource center located at the Library, aiming to gather students and other campus users to express their imaginations, to communicate with others and to develop their ideas with others’ inputs.
