The ITC , co-chaired by D r. T . C. Ou, Vice-President of New Asia College, and M r. S. K . Fang, Vice-President of United College, completed its report to the Vice- Chancellor in June. Other members of the IT C are: Dr. D. Y. Chang (N.A.), M r. Kao M ing (U.C.), Dr. K . C_ Mark (C.C.), Dr. C. S. Tsang (C.C.), D r. M . S. Tsao (C.C.), Dr. S. T . Tsou (U.C.) and M r. Wang Chi (N.A.). The committee was appointed by the Vice-Chancellor in early A p ril to examine the practical problems of inter- collegiate teaching for 3rd-year and 4th-year students. The University Academic Planning Committee, on July 6 considered the recommendations made by the IT C and the following decisions were made: (1) The inter-collegiate teaching programme shall begin in September with a number of selected courses offered in each college and preferably also in each of the three faculties. Acceptance of students into inter-collegiate courses w ill be subject to two conditions: availability of accommodation and satisfactory preparation on the part of the students in course prerequisites. (2) A detailed time-table and programme w ill be worked out by an ad hoc committee composed of the Registrars o f the three Colleges. (3) The premises in New Asia College and the Univer­ sity Central Offices, because of their centralised locations, may be more used to conduct inter­ collegiate courses than the premises o f the other two colleges at the present. (4) A programme to exchange teachers of selected subjects among the Colleges for a certain number of hours each week w ill be worked out. The Vice-Chancellor expressed his gratitude to the two co-chairmen and the members of the ITC for the work they had done. He also emphasised that the idea of inter-collegiate teaching was not to minimise the individualities of the Foundation Colleges, for teaching would still be carried out by the Colleges. He pointed out the desirability to pool the specialist knowledge of the staff and facilities for the benefit of all the students of the University. One result of the inter-collegiate teaching would be the reduction of the teaching load of some members of the teaching staff, releasing them for more research work,' said the Vice-Chancellor. PROCEDURE OF UNIVERSITY APPOINTMENTS The procedure governing the appointment of professors, readers and senior lecturers is provided for in the statutes of the Chinese University of Hong Kong Ordinance, 1963.
