The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) held its annual Long Service Award Presentation Ceremony today to honor faculty and staff members who have served the University for at least 20 years.
HKUST also conferred its first 30 years’ service award this year. Despite a history of just 28 years, dozens of administrative staff spanning across areas including finance, human resources, facilities management, public affairs and library, among others, have begun preparatory work for the campus as early as 1989.
HKUST established the Long Service Award to express appreciation to and recognition for long-serving faculty and staff members. It was also meant to foster a sense of belonging for the HKUST community. There were a total of 43 awardees this year: 28 with 30 years of service and 15 of 20 years.
HKUST President Prof. Wei SHYY attended the presentation ceremony with the vice-presidents. The awardees’ families and friends were also invited by the University to share the happiness of the celebration.
Officiating at the Long Service Award Presentation Ceremony, Prof. SHYY said, “I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to our long serving staff and faculty members for their unfailing support to HKUST. Without their endeavors and dedication, HKUST won’t become what it is today – an international university recognized for its teaching and research quality. I hope all our colleagues can keep the passion alive. Together, we will create an even better future.”
