The University recently received a generous donation pledge of HK$1 million from Mr. Herman Hui designated for the establishment of the "Ada S.H. Li Social Work Practicum Scholarship". In recognition of the donor's generosity, a cheque presentation ceremony officiated by Mr. and Mrs. Herman Hui and Professor Albert S.C. Chan, JP, President and Vice-Chancellor, was held on 6 February 2013. After the ceremony, Professor Chan hosted a lunch for the donor joined by HKBU representatives.
