“10 Years of I·CARE - Dreams to be Fulfilled” of University Lecture on Civility 2021

The long lost University Lecture on Civility will be back again next week……

It has been a decade since the I·CARE Programme was launched in 2011.  At the same time, the programme’s founder Professor Joseph Sung is departing from CUHK.  Prior to his leaving, Professor Sung will reminisce his passion about I·CARE and recount his insights on tertiary education, on pandemic, and on how to embrace changes in our life.  As the saying goes, every ending is a new beginning.  Until we meet again.
