Kevin, Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Education, HKSAR Government
I extend my most sincere congratulations to Lingnan University on its 50th anniversary of re-establishment in Hong Kong.
Half a century ago, Lingnan University, in the name of Lingnan College, embarked on an ambitious journey to combine the best of Chinese and Western liberal arts traditions, and seek continuous enrichments to its curricula and teaching philosophy. It has since flourished along with Hong Kong and accomplished enviable achievements in various domains.
Today, Lingnan University is positioned as one of the finest liberal arts institutions in Asia. Its insistence on close teacher-student relationship and its commitment to community services are widely acclaimed.
To stay ahead of its competitors as new opportumtles and challenges unfold, Hong Kong needs, now more than ever, the creativity, adaptability and humanistic perspective that Lingnanians are renowned for. I am certain that the Lingnan community will continue making significant contributions to the prosperity of our city.
On this auspicious occasion, I send agam my deepest commendations to the esteemed leadership, academic staff and talented students of Lingnan University. May you find equal success in the years to come.
Kevin Yeung Yun-hung
Secretary for Education
The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
