The mission of Centre for Student Advancement and Resources (STARS) is to support the development of the students of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University through a comprehensive range of co-curricular programmes, activities, tools, and resources.

Behind everything that is done at Centre STARS stands the belief that a holistically well student will be one that is prepared to make a difference in the world as a graduate. The services offered have been strategically developed with this in mind. It is not enough for a student to just be intellectually and physically well. The other areas of wellness such as social, spiritual, emotional, and occupational, also must be considered.
