For all students and alumni concerned about the future of General Education Unit, HKU. An official announcement from Dr. Wong Chi Chung was sent to all students today. Here is the content of the email:
“All is well!”
After almost two years of opinion gathering, soul searching and strategic planning, in order to synergise the development of the co-curricular non-credit bearing programmes for all HKU students, GE will become a team in CEDARS and report to the Dean of Student Affairs. On one hand, we can contribute to CEDARS’ co-curricular programmes and further enhance our impacts mutually. On the other hand, a broader and more diversified learning experience can be generated. As the Head of the team, I will make sure our ongoing GE programme curation and direction will be intact and in line with our philosophy since 1995, together with my existing team, resources and spaces.
We hope to hear from you because our programmes are tailor-made for you and we endeavour to provide whole-person education and arouse students’ intellectual curiosity in HKU. So please send in your opinions and suggestions by 11 May 2018 (Fri) to [email protected].
We plan to start this new chapter on 1 September 2018 in the new academic year. And, please continue to travel with us to the limitless realms of knowledge and wisdom of interest-driven learning.
Dr. Wong Chi Chung
Assistant Director of General Education, HKU
