The Review 2016

Future vision In today’s world of new technologies and globalisation, modern universities have fantastic opportunities to contribute knowledge and know-how and make an impact. But if they are to succeed in this, they must be fit for purpose. At the University of Hong Kong, we revisited our overarching goals in 2016 to consider how we can best harness our talents to take advantage of the opportunities. While HKU has done very well to date, it now faces a more competitive and dynamic global academic environment. To continue to be Asia’s leading global university, we need a sharper, more strategic focus: we must be more nimble and adaptable, more ambitious and ‘can-do’, more solution- orientated and more proactive.
