By the time this publication reaches you, we will already be well into the 2020/2021 academic year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many classes continue to be run online in this semester, but we have also been able to allow some face-to-face teaching activities on campus while remaining vigilant to safeguard our students and staff.
PolyU is always committed to fulfilling its social responsibility through its educational and research endeavours. During this unprecedented pandemic, social responsibility has taken on a new meaning. Our researchers and students have been harnessing their expertise to help the public cope with the pandemic through impactful research and innovative solutions. We have also implemented online Service-Learning for our students – allowing them to serve distant communities through online means.
On our National Day, we held a solemn Flag-raising Ceremony, bringing together hundreds of people from the PolyU community to celebrate the 71st anniversary of our country. We see it as our duty to nurture successful future professionals and leaders with a deep affection for their family and nation, an international perspective and a strong sense of social responsibility.
I am pleased to share with you more stories of PolyU in this issue. Enjoy reading!
