The year 2022 is a significant one for PolyU, since it represents the University’s 85th Anniversary. For more than eight decades, PolyU and its predecessors have played an important role in the different stages of social and economic development of our community, answering the call of the times and contributing to the advancement of Hong Kong, the Nation and the world.
As a result of the efforts of many generations, PolyU is now ranked among the top 100 universities in the world by both Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) and Times Higher Education (THE). I must express my deep gratitude to members of the University community for all their contributions. Their continued support is crucial for PolyU to continue its pursuit of excellence in education, research and knowledge transfer, living up to the University Motto: “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind.”
To mark this milestone, we will hold a year-long programme of celebrations under the theme of “We Are PolyU • Together We Excel”. Let me call upon our partners and friends in the community, as well as PolyU staff, students and alumni, to join us in the anniversary events ahead.
