Dear Friends of OUHK,
Since its establishment in 1989, The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) has nurtured over 120,000 graduates who have dedicated their professional knowledge and expertise toward serving our community and contributing to the development of Hong Kong. Today, I would like to tell you the story of two of our alumni. They are:
Mr Leung Kee Cheong, who obtained his first degree from the OUHK in 1998. He has then become the Principal of the Fresh Fish Traders’ School. He is well known for his uncompromising efforts to make a positive difference to his students’ life. He saved the school from being closed down and established the Principal’s Foundation to help the needy students. He single-handedly raised HK$23 million for the school, which was then used as exemption for those who cannot afford to tuition, textbook and uniform fees.
Mr Darren Zheng is a graduate of the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration in 2006. Nine years after graduation, with hard work and perseverance, he became the Executive Director of a listed company in Hong Kong. Up till now, he could hardly forget how the teachers at OUHK had changed his life.
The OUHK has always been committed to providing high quality education to aspiring learners, helping them realize their study dreams by upholding our mission of “Education for All”. I am sure that the above two alumni are just among some of the numerous examples of how OUHK’s education and the invaluable learning experience we provide could significantly change someone’s life.
I have worked in various other local universities and have known many different students with varied background, but since I took up presidency at OUHK in 2014, I was deeply moved by the dedication and committed learning attitude of OUHK students, who treasure from heart of this valuable learning opportunity they had. Many graduates, in their own ways, give back to society and bring about beautiful changes to others. They have magnified the spirit of OUHK, and have made our work even more meaningful. To ensure that this spirit will uphold, the University tirelessly seek for the better learning environment and teaching quality to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our students, so that we can present more worthy and quality graduates to our society.
Nonetheless, as a self-financed institution, we are faced with great challenges financially all the time. Tuition fee is our primary source of income, but since most of our students come from humble background, we must maintain our tuition fees at a reasonable level. Therefore, an additional stable source of income is crucial for our development. I sincerely invite you to join this meaningful “Monthly Giving Programme” to offer your kind support for the sustainable development of the University. Your generosity is not only a recognition and affirmation of our work, but also a driving force for us to move forward to the next level of academic excellence!
