Chairman's Message

Dear Members,

Professor Peter Mathieson has recently tendered his resignation from the position of President and Vice-Chancellor. Convocation Standing Committee (SC) is concerned regarding the selection procedures and criteria for the next VC of HKU and has written to the Council expressing SC's readiness to support and assist the University in the selection process.

Standing Committee urged the Council to continue the tradition and practice to involve representatives from various stakeholders so that a transparent and credible selection process can be maintained. As an important stakeholder, the Convocation looks forward to participating in the Selection process in various ways, including electing an alumnus/alumna to the Selection Committee.

Dr Patrick Poon
