Logo of Office of the Provost, HKBU

Welcome from the Provost

HKBU is one of Hong Kong’s 8 leading UGC-funded universities, and is one of the oldest higher education institutions in Hong Kong. It has a Christian heritage dating back to the middle of the last century, and has evolved into a university of the world that welcomes and embraces people of all faiths and persuasions. HKBU offers a caring, inclusive and contemporary community, and the fast-rising numbers of international students on our campuses have noticeably enriched the life and texture of our learning environment. In sum, we are a university on the move, open to the world and new ideas, true to the innovative and creative spirit of Hong Kong, but focused on the needs of the society around us and on the celebration of difference and diversity in their many forms.
