On behalf of Lingnan University, I am delighted to extend to you a warm invitation to the conference of Liberal Arts Education in an Asian Context: Achievements, Challenges and Perspectives which will take place at Hotel ICON, Hong Kong on 20th and 21st November 2017.
During the conference, we aim to appraise liberal arts education from an Asian perspective with focuses in the following areas:
- Discuss the major achievements of liberal arts education in Asia thus far and challenges ahead;
- Identify opportunities for future development and collaboration; and
- Share experiences in implementing best practices and explore areas for collaboration.
We believe that by bringing educators with rich experience and expertise in liberal arts education not only from Asia but also from other parts of the globe together, this conference will enable us to renew and reinvigorate the liberal arts education traditions and development. Most important of all, this conference will offer a great opportunity for participants to establish the Alliance for Asian Liberal Arts Universities, an inter-university platform distinguished by blending the best traditions and practices of the East and the West.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Lingnan University. To commemorate such a special moment, we sincerely hope to have your presence at this conference!
I look forward to welcoming you in Hong Kong.
With my warmest wishes,
Professor Ka Ho Mok
Chairman of the Organising Committee for 50th Anniversary
