The Graduate School (GS) organised a departmental retreat on 9 August 2022, with over 20 staff members joining the event. Despite the stormy weather, the meeting room was in a warm and harmonious atmosphere.
Professor Jiannong Cao, Dean of GS, kicked off the day by delivering an opening speech and welcomed Professor Louise Cummings, who would be the Associate Dean of GS starting from 1 September 2022. Dr Kelly Chan, the School Secretary, went on to illustrate the concept of “Operation by Function”, followed by group presentations on reviewing current functional processes and tasks involved.
In the afternoon session, Professor Cao led the discussion on strategic planning. Colleagues worked in groups to identify key results of different focus areas and actions to be implemented to achieve the objectives.
Professor Cao wrapped up the day by reiterating the goal and mission of GS. The retreat was a fruitful experience and laid the foundation for the strategic directions of the School in the year ahead.
