About 160 Chemistry alumni attended a dinner held on 25 June co-organised by Baptist Chemists and the Alumni Affairs Office to celebrate the 60th anniversary of HKBU as well as to bid farewell to retiring Chemistry Professor Chan Wing-hong. On the same occasion, a plan to establish the “Dr Mok Man Hung Endowed Chair in Chemistry” was also announced.
At the dinner, President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Roland Chin shared the latest development and his vision for HKBU. Baptist Chemists and the Department of Chemistry each presented a gift to Professor Chan Wing-hong to thank him for the great contributions he made to the Department and the University over the past 35 years.
The “Dr Mok Man Hung Endowed Chair in Chemistry” will be set up to commemorate the late Dr Mok, former Vice-President (Administration) and Secretary and Head of Chemistry Department, and to advance research development at the Department of Chemistry and HKBU. The University has set a goal of raising HK$10 million for setting up the endowment fund which aims at recruiting and retaining the highest-quality scholar and financing advanced research.
