嶺南大學研究生校友會成立大會暨第一屆幹事會選舉於2020年7月29日完滿舉行。自去年4月,一群熱心的研究生校友回應了大學的邀請,組成了研究生校友會籌備委員會。經過大半年的籌備,候選幹事會原本在今年初舉行成立大會,但因新型冠狀病毒疫情影響而延期,最終改為網上會議形式並順利舉行。

在研究生院副院長林敬新博士、大學發展及校友事務處處長毛南傑先生及大約60名校友以親自參與或委託校友投票的見證下,嶺大研究生校友會及其第一屆幹事會順利成立。

毛處長先在會議上致歡迎辭,他感謝籌備委員會的熱心參與,並期待研究生校友會能連繫眾多本地、內地及海外校友。隨後,研究生校友會籌備委員會主席夏志全先生向大家介紹校友會及會章,讓一眾校友瞭解校友會的性質及工作。他表示成立校友會的初衷是希望透過校友會以凝聚更多校友的力量,一方面向外推廣嶺大,回饋母校;另一方面增強校友以至學生們之間的互動,建構一個強大且互助的校友網絡。第一屆幹事會的成員逐一自我介紹後,校友們便投票通過會章及第一屆幹事會的成立。最後,幹事會期望更多校友能加入成為會員,並已準備好為校友及母校作貢獻。 

Lingnan University Postgraduate Alumni Association (the Association) Formation Meeting and the First Executive Committee Election were held on 29 July 2020.  Accepting the invitation by the University, a group of enthusiastic postgraduate alumni formed the Organising Committee for the formation of the Association since April 2019.  The Formation Meeting was initially scheduled to be held in the first quarter of 2020 after 9 months of preparation.  However, it was postponed and turned to an online meeting due to the epidemic of Coronavirus disease. 

Witnessed by Dr. Frankie Lam, Associate Dean of School of Graduate Studies, Mr Matthew Mo, Director of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Affairs, and about 60 alumni who participated in the voting or entrusted attendees with their votes, the Association and its First Executive Committee were officially established.

Mr Matthew Mo gave his welcoming speech to thank for the enthusiastic participation and efforts made by the Organising Committee and wish them to connect with more local, Mainland and overseas alumni. Mr Chris Xia, the Chairman of the Organising Committee, then introduced the Association and its Constitution to the fellow alumni. He emphasized that one of the major missions of the Association was to build a strong and mutually supportive alumni network, which would bring together more alumni to promote and give back to the alma mater.  Besides, it could also help enhance the interaction between alumni and students.  Each member of the First Executive Committee gave the self-introduction before the voting.  Finally, the Constitution and the First Executive Committee were endorsed unanimously. At the end of the meeting, the Executive Committee expressed their anticipation of recruiting more alumni to be members and their determination of contributing to the alumni and the alma mater.

「嶺大校友樂獻會」的成立是旨在凝聚一群熱心校友,透過捐獻回饋母校,支持母校發展及惠澤學弟妹,同時亦加強校友與母校之聯繫。

近月的新型冠狀病毒疫情嚴重影響了香港和全球人類的生活,很多今年畢業的嶺大學生亦因此失去了寶貴的學習機會及大學舍堂生活,更甚的是,在未來數月內,他們更要面對十分嚴峻的就業情況。

嶺大校長及副校長為了幫助應屆畢業生渡過經濟逆轉帶來的困境,決定捐出十份之一的年薪,成立「2020年畢業生支援基金」。大學期望能為基金籌得五百萬港元款項,讓超過六百位嶺大畢業生受惠。

我們誠意邀請您以捐款或其他方式 (包括提供就業、實習或社區服務機會) 支持我們的畢業生。您的支持和鼓勵對他們而言實在意義重大! 如欲支持「2020年畢業生支援基金」,請按此。

The outbreak of COVID-19 has threatened the well-being of every one in Hong Kong and beyond. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our 2020 graduates have missed some valuable opportunities associated with a normal university life.  Moreover, the pandemic has casted a shadow over the future of this year’s graduates who will face a shrinking job market this summer.

In order to support our 2020 graduates in dealing with the adverse economic impact of the pandemic, the President and the Vice-President have decided to donate 10% of their annual salary to initiate the “Support Fund for 2020 Graduates” with a target of HK$5 million for the benefits of over 600 graduates this year.

We sincerely appeal to every one of you, as an invaluable member of the Lingnan community, to join hands with us.  Your generous support in making a donation to the Fund or providing other non-monetary contributions, be they job, internship or community service opportunities, will be extremely meaningful and important to our graduating students.  Please click here to show your support!

Should you have any enquiries about the Fund, please click here to visit our website or contact our colleagues at 2616-8976 or development@LN.edu.hk. Thank you very much in advance for your support.

Campus News

As the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases is still rising in Hong Kong, the University has decided to extend the special work arrangements until further notice while maintaining essential services of departments/offices/units. Heads of departments/offices/units are given discretion to adopt work-from-home arrangement whenever feasible, or other flexible work arrangements, for their staff members based on operational needs.

Studying abroad requires courage: to leave families and friends for an unknown place is one thing, and to adopt a new way of life, to make new friends, and to take care of oneself while studying is even more difficult.

As a university with more than 400 non-local students from all over the world each year, Lingnan understands the frustration and loneliness they have to tackle, and offers a wide choice of programmes and activities to help them adapt to their new life. One of these is the Lingnan Host Family Scheme, launched in 2008 and operated by the Student Services Centre.

The second annual showcase of the Jockey Club ICH+ Innovative Heritage Education Programme with three distinctive themes is opened from 2 July to 2 August 2020 in the heart of Causeway Bay: Urban Sky at Hysan Place, Pak Sha Road and Sharp Street East. With over a 1,000 art pieces by instructors and students, the exhibition boasts revolutionary content, hoping to strike a chord with people of different ages and backgrounds.

In the 2020/21 Funding Exercise of the University Grants Committee (UGC)’s General Research Fund (GRF), Early Career Scheme (ECS) and Humanities and Social Sciences Prestigious Fellowship Scheme (HSSPFS), 22 LU projects have received a grand total of $10.6 million.

Two new books on the shelf:

- Models of the Human in Twentieth-Century Linguistic Theories: System, Order, Creativity

- Literature Publication: Prose
