The Faculty Retreat was held on 9 August 2021. A total of 30 colleagues joined the event, including Professor Rick Wong, Interim Provost, Professor Jiming Liu, Dean of Science, Associate and Assistant Deans, Department Heads and representatives and colleagues from the Dean’s Office.

The retreat kicked off with Professor Jiming Liu’s opening remarks. During the event, each Department was invited to give a presentation on the Departmental SWOT analysis and strategic plan, followed by Q&A session. We were honoured to have invited Professor Rick Wong to share with us the strategic directions and initiatives of the University. Departments also had fruitful discussions on Transdisciplinary Development and External/Internal Resources. Many inspiring ideas have been shared and exchanged.
