CUHK Announces Cancellation of the 88th Congregation and Honorary Degree Ceremony
In view of the escalation of the recent social unrest across the territory, and the continuous disruption to public transport services which has severely affected the accessibility to the University campus, as well as the safety of graduands and their family and friends, The Chinese University of Hong Kong announces the cancellation of the 88th Congregation for the Conferment of Honorary and Doctoral Degrees scheduled to be held on 21 November 2019. Nevertheless, Doctoral degrees will still be conferred on that date (21 November 2019) in the absence of the Doctoral Graduands without a ceremony, after which degree certificates will be issued as arranged. A celebratory graduation event in the University campus will be held at a date to be determined. The ceremony for conferment of Honorary degrees will be held at an appropriate time in due course. The University regrets any inconvenience caused.
