Welcome to Hong Kong Baptist University.
As a global university, and one of the top research-led liberal arts institutions in Asia, we are proud of our heritage. From HKBU’s humble beginnings in 1956 as a post-secondary college, our Founding Fathers instilled a liberal arts philosophy and a caring, creative, and global culture. Those principles are as important today as they were then.
Over time the University has gone from strength to strength, and become a leader in a wide range of fields. Together with our students, faculty and staff members, as well as our friends in the community, we are committed to academic excellence in teaching, research and service, and this can be witnessed through our diverse range of excellent programmes for students, as well as the knowledge breakthroughs we have achieved for the betterment of the world. In addition, our whole-person and liberal arts education ensures that we nurture a huge diversity of talent, and we are dedicated to developing future leaders who can shape the future with confidence, competence and commitment.
I hope your visit to our website will give you a better picture of our University and our outstanding students, staff, research and educational initiatives, and we look forward to seeing you on our campus.
Professor Alexander Ping-kong WAI, JP
President & Vice-Chancellor
