Seventh Inauguration of Endowed Professorships


April 2013

The University celebrated its Seventh Inauguration of Endowed Professorships on April 19, 2013. At the ceremony, seven new Endowed Professors and one successive appointment were presented.  Since 2005, a total of 72 Endowed Professorships (including 3 Distinguished Visiting Professorships) have been established.

Endowed Professorships are created to provide perpetual support to areas of academic excellence.  It is also a privileged honour bestowed upon the University’s distinguished academics.  With a close partnership between academe and generous philanthropists, Endowed Professorships represent a promise to scale new levels of commitment to society and to humankind.

Each Endowed Professorship is established with a generous donation of HK$10 million or more which is matched by the University with an equal amount.  The interest generated from the $20 million endowment is used to support the respective area of academic excellence.
