Baptist gets $100 million donationCentral Station | Cissy So 11 Jun 2019
Hong Kong Baptist University has received a HK$100 million donation from the Lee Shau Kee Foundation in support of its strategic development, particularly the enhancement of the research cluster of creative media and practice.
A 10-year plan was set up to make the university a research-led liberal arts institution of global significance where three clusters will be focused on - creative media and practice, health and drug discovery, and data analytics and artificial intelligence in X, with X denoting areas such as data-journalism and data-health care.
University president and vice-chancellor Roland Chin Tai-hong said the massive donation will help bring the institution's strategic plans to fruition.
It will also help in taking the university's creative cluster in film, graphics, literary arts, music, visual arts and media arts to new heights and foster Hong Kong's development as Asia's creative hub.
