We have sharpened and updated our strategic directions in substantial ways. The refreshed strategic objectives represent the desired emphasis for our next phase of development. Our underlying aspirations not only set out to sustain and advance HKUST as a trendsetter in both education and research landscapes for the long term, but also address the evolving needs and challenges facing society.
A University of TALENTS
Under the Unified HKUST-Complementary Campuses umbrella, we are prepared to extend our global reservoir of minds and abilities by looking beyond conventional academic disciplines and being open to the recruitment and nurturing of more diverse areas of strength among students, faculty and staff.
An International LEADER in Education and Research
By balancing disciplinary and cross-disciplinary activities, and on-going development of our educational thinking, our two complementary campuses will serve as dual knowledge hubs, creating a distinct synergy and model for the future.
Incorporating INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP in Our Spirit
Our fast-changing world requires ever-faster implementation of new concepts and technologies, and a mindset equipped to solve real-world challenges through the transfer of knowledge into positive, sustainable change. We will strive for such a spirit to become a recognized core component, internally and externally, of our knowledge transfer endeavors and social impact.
An Exemplar of
BEST-IN-CLASS Standards, Practices, and Operations
With sustainable development as the key to present and future, our goal is to deliver the best possible campus environment, and business processes and systems to support our world-class education, research, and diverse University community for the long term.
A Champion of DIVERSITY
Our goal is to embrace and value differences, to learn to learn from each other, and to foster a mindset of diversity that promotes inclusiveness, collegiality, and respect.
