    new Director of Public Affairs brings ample experiences to OUHK

    ng In July of this year, Mr Stephen Ng Chin-ming took over as the Director of Public Affairs. Stephen brings more than 30 years of experience in both the public and private sectors to this post. He looks forward to the challenges in his new role with the OUHK.

    Stephen decided to join the OUHK because of his admiration for its ideal of lifelong learning and his own belief in the importance of providing educational opportunities for all. This commitment began when he was a 13 year old boy at Wah Yan College in Kowloon. As a member of the Wah Yan Poor Boys' Club, he helped those less fortunate than himself with their schoolwork. He has continued to take part in such voluntary service for over 30 years. Later, during his university days, his belief in the importance of educational opportunity also led him to work as an adult education instructor. To Stephen, it is gratifying to help others regain lost opportunities and he has found a complementary environment with the OUHK.

    When he was studying at university, Stephen was deeply involved in extracurricular activities; classmates sometimes even joked that he seemed to spend more time on activities than inside the lecture halls. He believes that involvement in extracurricular activities enriches the student experience and fosters a well-rounded education of the whole person. He hopes to have more opportunities to meet with students and to share more about his various work experiences with them. Stephen adds: 'Universities should not just open the door to knowledge, but should also open students' minds and prepare them for their future career paths.'

    When asked about the future work for the Unit, Stephen said that he hopes to further enhance the public image of the OUHK through different media. He looks forward to organizing more local secondary school talks and outreach activities in the mainland so that prospective students and the public can have a better understanding of the multiple modes of learning. Fund-raising is another key area which Stephen will focus on, as this demonstrates the support that the University receives from the community. With the 25th Anniversary looming around the corner, an array of celebration activities will be launched to showcase the OUHK.

    Aside from his busy schedule with the University, Stephen also has many hobbies, ranging from sports to literature and calligraphy. In his office hangs a calligraphy scroll with the characters 'suiyuan', meaning 'to go with destiny.' His trust in the power of fate has brought him to his present position with the OUHK, and will enable him to support the university in its future growth and development.
