The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) was deeply honoured to have received a magnanimous donation from Prof. Francis Yuen and Dr Rose Lee, in support of the University’s strategic development. The Naming Ceremony of “Yuen Campus” was held on 25 November 2021. The Ceremony was officiated by Prof. Yuen, Dr Lee, together with Dr Moses Cheng, Council Chairman; Dr Patrick Poon, Governor and Chairman of HSUHK Fundraising and Donation Committee and Foundation Management Committee; and President Simon Ho.
In his welcoming remarks, Dr Cheng praised Prof. Yuen and Dr Lee for their exceptional achievements in the business sector and their active contributions to our society. They placed great emphasis on education and had been steadfast supporters of HSUHK’s commitment to nurturing students with all-round development over the years. In 2018, Dr Lee donated for HSUHK’s sustainable development and the establishment of a scholarship scheme. Prof. Yuen and Dr Lee’s continued support was truly a resounding affirmation of the University’s educational goals and endeavours. To express the University’s sincere gratitude, it named its South Campus “Yuen Campus” in honour of Prof. Yuen’s father.
Prof. Francis Yuen and Dr Rose Lee have a deep connection with the University. Prof. Yuen is a university-wide Adjunct Professor. Dr Lee was the Chairman of the Board of Governors. Sharing at the Ceremony, “We firmly believe in HSUHK’s unique ‘Liberal + Professional’ education model, adhering to the Founders Dr S H Ho and Dr Lee Quo Wei’s education ideals, will benefit students in growth and development. Apart from professional competencies, more importantly, our students should be cultivated with a broad mind and a spirit of perseverance for continuous improvement.”
The FTFY Family Trust will continue to work with the University to promote the development of the higher education sector.
In his appreciation remarks, President Simon Ho pointed out the University’s achievements today were brought about by the guidance and support of all stakeholders including the Board of Governors, Council, donors and supporters, alumni and the university community as a whole. With Prof. Yuen and Dr Lee’s donation, the University will continue to work hard to carry out more innovative teaching, research and student development initiatives. President Ho called for greater support from the wider community so that the University can realise its vision to become a leading private liberal-arts-oriented university in the region.
