As education increasingly values social experience, more opportunities are opened up for students to give back to society during their course of studies. Over 10 postgraduate students of CUHK have landed internships in United Nations agencies to help developing regions in the Asia Pacific combat natural disasters. They used their knowledge of virtual geographic environments to help the UN improve services related to natural disaster relief. With such skills and potential, it is not surprising that they should go from operation to management soon after they join the workforce. Middle management is the thick filling in the modern organizational sandwich. Some say this sizeable middle section holds no real power but is held accountable anyway. Let’s see what H has to say to the rookie about this. ‘Bringing together China and the West’ is a founding value of the University and Chan Hing- yan, alumnus of the CUHK Department of Music, knows this best, and creates Chinese operas out of the box for the modern era. On the eve of the launch of his latest musical venture, he found time to talk to us about the creative experience. 目录 Contents 在联合国实习的日子 Days in the UN 2 宇宙最强低碳烹饪 Low-Carbon Kungfu Cookery 4 Letters to a Young Executive 5 博文贯珍 The Galleria 5 . . . 校园消息 Campus News 6 宣布事项 Announcements 6 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 7 口谈实录 Viva Voce 8 吉羊,吉祥也 The Auspicious Ram 文物馆与艺术系、中国语言及文学系合作,于2月6日至4月26日举办「喜气洋洋─中国艺术与文化中的羊」展览,展出四十余件历代羊文物,迎 接羊年来临。 To greet the arrival of the Year of the Ram, the Art Museum, the Department of Fine Arts and the Department of Chinese Language and Literature host an exhibition from 6 February to 26 April to showcase some 40 ram-related cultural relics. 陈庆恩教授,歌剧《萧红》、《大同》作曲人(页8) Prof. Chan Hing-yan, composer of the operas Heart of Coral and Datong, The Chinese Utopia (p. 8) Photo by ISO staff 恭贺新禧 Happy New Year 本刊下期(四五四期)将于3月19日出版。 The CUHK Newsletter will take a break and resume publication on 19 March.
