To provide students with opportunities to develop an interest in research and innovation early in their study life at PolyU, a Residential College (RC) with the theme of “Achieving Academic and Research Excellence through Inquiry-based Learning” has been established in the Ho Man Tin Halls of Residence. The RC is led by a Residential College Master and a team of ten Resident Fellows. The Residential College Master is a concurrent position for an academic staff member at the grade of Associate Professor or above who is accountable to the Dean of Students for the development of RC life. Specifically, their role is to provide pastoral care and intellectual guidance to residents, as well as opportunities for the pursuit of research and innovation activities and holistic personal growth. Resident Fellows are concurrent appointments for academic staff members at the grade of Research Assistant Professor (RAP) or above. This year, the serving Resident Fellows are at grades ranging from RAP to Professor, from four different faculties - FAST, FCE, FENG and FHSS.
The RC Master and the Resident Fellows play a key role in helping residents strive for academic excellence and research competency, and in motivating residents to further their learning beyond the classroom through inquiry-based learning and research projects. They will also support residents’ personal and professional development.
