Awards and Achievements

A number of Lingnanians have been bestowed with honours or appointed Justices of the Peace by the HKSAR Government this year in recognition of their significant contributions to Hong Kong or for their dedicated public and community service.

Associate Professor Elizabeth Ho at the Department of English is one of the recipients of the Teaching Excellence Awards 2015/16, the biennial competition at Lingnan that recognises teachers who have demonstrated outstanding performance. With teaching experience in the US, she advocates open communication between faculty and students.

Over 100,000 tonnes of glass waste are produced in Hong Kong each year.  However, due to the low recycling rate, a large amount of recyclable resources are wasted.  In view of this, four Lingnan students have proposed an “Elite Recycling Enterprise” plan to set up a social enterprise to process glass waste with innovative technology, and at the same time employ people with disabilities in the hope of enhancing environmental protection and helping the disadvantaged to get a job.
