Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Herman Hu Shao-ming, Council Chairman of CityU, said alumni were always welcomed to come back to campus to learn about the latest developments at CityU.

Mr Hu said he appreciated the “Giuseppe Castiglione – Lang Shining New Media Art Exhibition” being held at CityU, adding that he hoped the alumni could promote this exhibition and other CityU achievements to the community.

Professor Way Kuo, University President, joined Mr Hu in applauding the Convocation. He said alumni were an important bridge between society and the University. With the effort and contribution of alumni, donations received by CityU have been increasing.

Alumnus Mr Clovis Lau Koong-yep, re-elected Chairman of the Fifth Standing Committee, led the members to take an oath to serve the alumni community and the University. “Our study life in CityU was unforgettable. In order to express our gratitude, the committee will devote to strengthening the alumni network and helping advance the University development,” Mr Lau said.

Also in attendance were Ir Dr Raymond Ho Chung-tai, honorary award recipient and former Council Chairman; Dr Peter Ho Ka-nam, Council member; Professor Arthur Ellis, Provost; Professor Lu Jian, Vice-President (Research and Technology); Professor Horace Ip Ho-shing, Vice-President (Student Affairs); Professor Matthew Lee Kwok-on, Vice-President (Development and External Relations); Professor Paul Lam Kwan-sing, Chief-of-Staff; Professor Yan Houmin, Dean of College of Business; Professor Zang Xiaowei, Dean of College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences; Emeritus Professor Benjamin Tsou Ka-yin; and Ms Kathy Chan Yin-ling, Associate Vice-President (Development and Alumni Relations).
