Around 40 class representatives share their thoughts on Project SEED with HKBU senior management including Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) Dr. Albert Chau, Associate Vice-President (Student Experience) Prof. Arthur Mak, and the management team of AAO and Office of Student Affairs.

HKBUnity Starts with Class Representatives

Alumni Affairs Office (AAO) has appointed 77 Class Representatives from 43 different programmes of the University for the academic year 2019-2020. The HKBU Class Representative Scheme was an initiative launched by AAO in 2012 with the aim to foster stronger ties with the alumni-to-be. Every year, programme directors are invited to nominate their outstanding undergraduate final year students to become Class Representatives, all of whom will be entrusted with the responsibility to build up a sustainable relationship between alumni and their alma mater.

Over the years, Class Representatives have been invited to join various AAO activities such as Homecoming Days, Distinguished Alumni Award High Table Dinners and Alumni Sharing Forums, all of which provide them great opportunities to know each other and learn from other outstanding alumni. Attending these events will also help broaden their social network and gain inspiration for career development. Details of similar upcoming events will be announced later.
