About the Programme
Hong Kong Baptist University is committed to providing a teaching and learning environment that prepares students, faculty and staff to function effectively in today's increasingly interdependent world. Towards this end, the University actively promotes faculty and student exchanges and international conferences/seminars and joint projects with institutions all over the world.
Recognizing the importance of "bringing the world to the campus", particularly in a society such as Hong Kong, where there is a large pool of international human resources, HKBU is the first university in Hong Kong which launched, in 2004, the Consul-General-in-Residence Programme.
The CGiR aims to foster international cooperation and intercultural understanding in today's interdependent world, as well as to enhance students' knowledge of and interest in world affairs.
The HKBU International Office is responsible for the execution of the Programme, under the direction of Dr. Albert Chau, Vice-President (Teaching & Learning), whose portfolio covers the broad areas of teaching and learning as well as the formulation of internationalization strategies.
