Alumni Ambassador Scheme aims to strengthen the connection between the University and alumni. It offers alumni a unique opportunity to connect with fellow classmates and make meaningful contributions to the alma mater.
Enthusiastic Alumni Wanted! If you are a graduate of Lingnan University (or its forerunner Lingnan College in Hong Kong since 1967), you can nominate yourself or be nominated by the University departments/offices to be Alumni Ambassador!
Some enthusiastic alumni have joined the Scheme and became our Alumni Ambassadors, please click here to review the List of Alumni Ambassadors.
“Graduating Class Gift Programme” provides an opportunity for graduates or alumni to support the University through making donations. As a token of appreciation, graduates or alumni who make a donation of HK$200 or above will receive special souvenir(s), such as LU Graduation Bear, LU Certificate Holder and/or one-year membership of LU Alumni Giving Club.

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.

The COVID-19 outbreak has created upheavals for everyone. Working from home (WFH) has become a new normal and is not expected to end even after the pandemic. Teaching and learning are no exceptions, although a recent study conducted by Lingnan University (LU) shows that both undergraduate students and community partner organisations generally prefer face-to-face interaction to the working-and-learning-from-home (WLFH) mode of internships.
A Lingnan University (LU) survey assessing how undergraduate students perceive their development from service-learning programmes showed that the respondents’ overall personal qualities and skills were significantly strengthened. In particular, “knowledge application” and “personal and professional skills” rose by 10 per cent. The research team noted that, during the COVID-19 pandemic, 70 per cent of respondents had to adopt the new mode of “service-learning from home”.
In the latest QS Asia University Rankings 2021, LU receives a perfect score of 100/100 in “International Faculty”, “Inbound Exchange Students” and “Outbound Exchange Students”, coming first of 650 universities in these three indictors.
Four Lingnan scholars have been awarded by the Research Grants Council’s research funding schemes 2020/21 for their outstanding research and achievements.
While it is not unusual for people to work as slashers — having more than one job at a time — or to think that changing jobs every three to five years is good for career advancement in this digital age, some stay at an organisation for years and then decades, simply for the belongingness and love of it.
