    Associate Vice President Prof. Ip Yiu-keung
    Charting out a path for the future

    Prof. Ip Yiu-keung was promoted to the post of Associate Vice President (Academic Support and External Links) in February of this year. In his new capacity, he will oversee the Library, University Research Centre, Centre for eLearning, Student Affairs Office, Office of Mainland Affairs and Office of Planning and Quality Assurance, thereby ensuring that the best possible teaching, learning and research support is offered to our staff and students, as well as strengthening relationships with various external parties.

    Prof. Ip, looking forward to his new role, said that he will strive to consistently develop all six of these offices, by focusing in particular on two aspects: planning and quality assurance. Regarding planning, Prof. Ip stated that he will continue to exercise good planning, because he believes that what is ‘well-begun is half done.’ Regarding quality assurance, Prof. Ip said that a good system is the key to ensuring that various quality assurance mechanisms function properly and efficiently. For this reason, he is now working on several proposals, one of which aims to establish student learning analytics for student learning management and behaviour analysis. It is hoped that, through the application of better data and information, new initiatives could be formulated and implemented more smoothly. Prof. Ip has also designated the enhancement of student support as another of his major tasks. He and his team will provide more diverse and better-tailored services in the near future.

    Prof. Ip joined the OUHK in 1997 and was promoted to Dean of the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration the following year. He said that he looks back fondly on the many years that he spent with his colleagues at the School. He remembers in particular those who raised doubts when he and his colleagues introduced the MBA programme in mainland China and the full-time face-to-face programmes in an attempt to expand upon the OUHK’s success in providing distance learning education. Thanks to the support of the Presidents and the hard work of his colleagues, these programmes turned out to be extremely successful.

    Prof. Ip said that he did not initially plan to become a university teacher and administrator after his graduation, but life has its own plans. He came to the OUHK after having taught in both local and overseas institutions, and has spent the greatest portion of his career at the OUHK. ‘I share a belief in the University’s mission. I am so happy to see our students succeed in their academic pursuits and see the difference this makes in their lives, especially for those students who missed their chance to study when they were younger.’ Prof. Ip also appreciates the innovativeness of the OUHK and its tradition of quality assurance and effective mangement.

    Outside of his work, Prof. Ip is an avid fisherman, but these days he is more likely to spend his weekends at the University rather than outside with his fishing rod. He is excited about the challenges ahead and prefers work to play. ‘To some it might look like I’m a workaholic, but I really enjoy my work!’
