In memory of Prof Chan Yuk-Shee

The University community mourned the sad loss of our former President Prof Chan Yuk-Shee, who passed away on 22 May. 


Prof Chan was a distinguished academic, dedicated educator, and a highly respected and visionary leader of Hong Kong's higher education sector.  He became the President of Lingnan University in 2007, when the landscape of the local higher education sector was undergoing pivotal changes.  During his six-year service at Lingnan, Prof Chan made invaluable contributions to the University and laid a solid foundation of liberal arts education for us to build upon.  Lingnanians shall forever be grateful to him.
