Dr. Vincent H.C. Cheng , Chairman of the University Council, presided over the congregation and conferred 3,284 bachelor’s degrees and 5,782 master’s degrees. In his speech, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung encouraged graduates to develop a good understanding of the time they live in, and to strive to become future leaders. What Sort of an Age Do We Live in? Professor Sung quoted Dr. Ch’ien Mu ’s words from ‘Know Your Time, Lead Your Time’, and pinpointed that humankind should be guided by the ideal of the age. People who embrace this ideal will commit themselves to their study and work, and prepare to assume leadership. But the present age, observed Professor Sung, is one in which: ‘   Individualism is in the ascendant, a time when individual interest is often placed above that of the community. We must understand that wisdom often resides in collective thinking, and that we should not focus solely on personal interest. I sincerely hope that the college life at the Chinese University has developed in you an inclination to corporate endeavours, a conciliative mindset, and a propensity to listen to others’ views. 本科课程 Undergraduate Programmes 共 颁 授 个学士学位,包括∶ A total of bachelor’s degrees were conferred, including: 文学士 Bachelor of Arts 468 工商管理学士 * Bachelor of Business Administration * 597 文学士及教育学士 Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education 39 教育学士 Bachelor of Education 74 工程学士 Bachelor of Engineering 386 法学士 Bachelor of Laws 71 内外全科医学士 Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery 123 护理学士 Bachelor of Nursing 237 药剂学士 Bachelor of Pharmacy 31 中医学学士 Bachelor of Chinese Medicine 20 理学士 ** Bachelor of Science** 672 社会科学学士 Bachelor of Social Science 527 * 其中一名毕业生同时获得工程学士学位 Including one graduate who was simultaneously also awarded a Bachelor of Engineering degree ** 其中九名毕业生就读双学位课程并同时获得工程学士学位 Including nine graduates who were simultaneously also awarded a Bachelor of Engineering degree for a double degree programme 硕士课程 Master’s Programmes 共 颁 授 个学硕士学位 A total of master’s degrees were conferred 3,284 各科颁授学位数目 Number of Degrees Awarded 5,782 学士及硕士学位颁授典礼 Congregation for the Conferment of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees ‘   This is an age that has witnessed information explosions, and one in which it is hard to tell right from wrong. The general education programmes of CUHK are what we have created to prepare you for a perpetual process of careful examination and judicious discernment. ‘   This is an age in which profit is often placed in front of ethics. It is very much to be hoped that the seeds of humanistic integrity have taken root in the hearts of our graduating students. Our pursuit is certainly for matters that are more long-lasting than profit and reputation. ’ Parting Words It was Professor Sung’s wish that that all graduates could share the ideal of the University’s founders, and strive to realize it, ‘I sincerely hope that you will approach the world with humility, and be thought and trend leaders without drifting into vulgarism, or blindly following fashion.’ After the ceremony, bachelor’s and master’s graduates enjoyed the memorable day with friends and family members under the yellow canopy and the blue sky.

Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung , Vice-Chancellor, quoting the illustrious scholar Dr. Ch’ien Mu , advised the fresh graduates to put the communal above the personal, to ponder and judge with caution the proliferation of views that marks our age, and to pursue ideals beyond private gain and status— ‘Know your time, lead your time.’ With their pool of expertise, universities often serve as effective watch stations for a society, and issue warnings when they foresee actions leading to undesirable results. Nobel laureate Prof. Joseph E. Stiglitz delivered a lecture on campus earlier in the month. Citing the financial crisis of 2007, he urged economists and policy-makers to learn from the experience and focus on the underlying problems of the global economy. Prof. Gabriel Lau , who has done climate assessment for the United Nations for many years, including helping to calculate some sobering figures, reminds us to ensure the well-being of the world in ‘Thus Spake …’. People buy insurance to manage life’s unpleasant surprises, yet when it comes to the environment, many still refuse to take out an insurance policy. Let’s hope Professor Lau’s revelations will change that. ———————■■■——————— 目录 Contents 学士及硕士学位颁授典礼 2 Congregation for the Conferment of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees 校园消息 Campus News 4 舌尖上的中大 CUHK f&b 6 宣布事项 Announcements 6 人事动态 Ins and Outs 7 刘雅章如是说 Thus Spake Gabriel Lau 8
