副校長(環球事務)高為元突然呈辭 暫無交代呈辭原因

2018 年 12 月 28 日

【學苑專訊】港大校長張翔於今日中午約十二時向全體港大教職員發集體電郵[1]宣布高為元副校長(環球事務)決定呈辭,高將會於明年新學年開始(即1月14日)正式離任並重新繼續其學術工作,繼續擔任轉化醫學工程系首席教授(Chair of Translational Medical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine)。

張翔於信中感謝高在位期間就港大國際化方面的付出,並表示期待高日後在學術的發展及貢獻。而高為元於辭職信中並無交代呈辭原因,只提到自2015年擔任副校長(環球事務)起,便積極協助港大成為「亞洲區全球領先大學(Asia’s Global University)」,他又表示港大與各地的頂尖大學簽訂合作夥伴關係,加強了港大國際學術研究合作,致使港大海外交流生數字倍增。而高亦在信末表示將會確保尚未完成的項目順利過渡。高為元於2015年9月就任副校長(環球事務),曾擔任美國威斯康辛大學麥迪遜分校藥劑、外科及生物醫學工程教授。

對於高為元的突然呈辭,有港大職員表示消息太突然,且尚有部分項目需要副校長(環球事務)跟進,暫時未知如何交接。學生會會長黃程鋒指學生會將會密切跟進相關的副校長任命工作,並期望在明年一月尾的校委會會議上處理高為元的呈辭以及後續的任命工作。依照程序,若副校長職位懸空,校方需要開啟物色委員會並進行全球的物色工作,屆時再把合適的人選交於校委會進行任命。

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to let you know that Professor John Kao has decided to return to his academic works as Professor, Chair of Translational Medical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine when the new semester of the current academic year starts. He therefore will step down from the position of Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Global) from January 14, 2019.

I would like to thank Professor Kao for his service in the VP & PVC (Global) position for the past years, which helped the University move forward in its internationalisation efforts. We look forward to his continued contributions to the University in his academic position.

Internationalisation remains an important pillar that supports our commitment to being Asia’s global university. The University will review its plan for overall leadership for globalisation endeavours with a view to making arrangement for succession.
