Message from President and Vice-Chancellor



Welcome to Hong Kong Baptist University.

Founded in 1956, HKBU has come a long way from its days as a post-secondary college. Becoming a publicly-funded tertiary institution in 1983 to further develop its strengths, and in 1994, HKBU proudly earned its university status. Today, together with our students, faculty and staff members, we continue to strive for excellence and make dedicated efforts towards our goal of becoming the region’s premier liberal arts university that delivers academic excellence, innovation, and social progress.

Through a holistic approach to education, we are committed to unlocking students’ creativity, equipping them with the knowledge, and nurturing them with desired attributes necessary in today’s globalised world. We also have a comprehensive international learning programme in place to broaden their horizons and global outlook.

I trust your visit will provide you with a better understanding of HKBU – our people, our dynamic culture, our quality programmes and innovative research, and the many ways in which we contribute to the development of the individual and to social progress.

We thank you for your interest in knowing more about HKBU and we look forward to seeing you on our campus.

Professor Roland T CHIN
President and Vice-Chancellor
