Chinese University students will be given more opportunities to air their grievances under the leadership of new Vice-Chancellor Professor Arthur Li Kwok-cheung. Professor Li, 51, who this month succeeds Professor Charles Kao Kuen, said students would be invited to regular, weekly 'breakfast meetings' with senior staff. 'We are going to inject more resources and let more staff and students participate in university administration,' he said. 'Our Dean of Students will hold breakfast meetings with students every Tuesday and Friday. 'The meetings will not be limited to students from unions. All students will be welcome. They can voice their grievances and I can get their feedback through my colleagues.' Professor Li, a former dean of medicine who is well-known for his outspokenness and efforts in fighting for resources, said he would encourage students to talk openly. He said students would be allowed to display banners and posters on the campus which might anger the Chinese Government. 'Their university years are a time when they learn to be independent and analytical,' he said. 'I don't mind if they argue or disagree with me. It's more important that they have their own thoughts, their own way of thinking.' However, he admitted that being a university vice-chancellor would not be easy as he had to face problems such as cuts in the tertiary education budget and the new grants and loans scheme for students. He said more than half of the students at Chinese University came from middle or lower-income families. 'Many of them have already taken part-time jobs to pay for their tuition fees. I am afraid their financial burden will be heavier under the proposed government grants and loans scheme,' he said. 'This is unfair. This is no good for education. 'Students in the future may need to spend more time earning money instead of studying.'
