Brown School Professor Visits APSS to Foster Academic Collaborations in Social Work and Social Policy

9 Jun 2023


The Department of Applied Social Sciences (APSS) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) was honored to host Prof. Shenyang GUO, the Frank J. Bruno Distinguished Professor of Social Work Research from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, on 8 June 2023.


During his visit, Prof. GUO received a warm welcome by Prof. Eric CHUI, Head and Professor of APSS, Prof. Angelina YUEN-TSANG, Honorary Professor of APSS, and other senior staff members of APSS including Prof. Juan CHEN, Dr Qiaobing WU, Dr Lu YU, Dr Karita KAN, and Mr Ken WAN.


The primary purpose of the visit was to update the collaboration status between the two universities and to discuss the ongoing partnership in offering a dual degree program. This program includes two master's degree programs offered by APSS, namely the MA in Social Policy and Social Development (MASPSD) and the Master of Social Work (MSW), and the Master of Social Policy (MSP) program from the Brown School.


Discussions also encompassed topics such as student exchange programs, faculty exchange initiatives, research collaborations, and other scholarly opportunities of mutual interest.


APSS eagerly anticipates further collaboration with the Brown School to strengthen the partnership between the two universities and foster academic collaborations in the fields of social work and social policy.
