Launch ceremony of the 50th Anniversary

2017-18 was a momentous year for Lingnan University. Over the past year, Lingnan University celebrated the 130th anniversary of its founding in Guangzhou and the 50th anniversary of its re-establishment in Hong Kong. Proudly, we have achieved considerable success in all of the five strategic areas as set out in the Strategic Plan 2016-2022. We are conscious of the new challenges brought about by the changing externalities, and devoted our attention to reflect on areas that need improvement and advancement, particularly in alignment with our vision and mission.

With the approval of the University Grants Committee (UGC) of the University's Planning Exercise Proposal for 2019-2022, the University extended the critical self-review of its progress and processes with a view to mapping out new strategic priorities over the next six years to further enhance and strengthen its position as a leading liberal arts university in Asia.

In this regard, a strategic planning retreat was held on 30 August 2018 that kick-started the planning process to devise a new strategic plan for 2019-2025. The new Strategic Plan 2019-2025 aims to maintain the University’s position as one of Asia’s leading liberal arts institutions. It represents a continuation of, and indeed a deeper commitment to, this vision. The plan provides a clear roadmap to accomplish important goals under six strategic areas that are appropriate for the new higher education landscape and that will take Lingnan University to its next level of excellence.
