The Science Faculty at The Chinese University of Hong Kong’s motto is Science Empowers Your Dreams. At the Faculty, we firmly believes in the potential in every one of our staff and students. We recognise that our members come from various backgrounds, and we are committed to building a welcoming community founded on the core values of Openness, Civility, and Inclusivity. With due respect for one another regardless of our differences and ensuring that admission and progress for staff and students are only determined by personal merit and performance, we aim to be where you get closer to reaching your dreams.
To establish a network of touchpoints for members of our Faculty and to facilitate a collection of a diverse range of input to build a more welcoming and inclusive community, the Faculty of Science established the Faculty of Science Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The committee currently consists of the following members:
CHAIRPERSON: Prof. YAM Sheung Chi Phillip (Assistant Dean, Education)
