Staff Who Make A Difference

Besides the teachers who are dedicated to nurturing outstanding graduates from the University, the efforts of the non-teaching staff, who give back up support to the teachers and students, should not be neglected.

To recognize staff who provide outstanding service, Personnel Office of CUHK has been presenting Exemplary Service Award since 2001. Up to now, there have been over 80 colleagues who have received the Award. They include general clerks and office assistants from various faculties and colleges, technician, drivers and other support personnel. Though they are not teachers or senior staff, their devotion and the significant effort that they put into their work through the years contributes to the larger team, and influences others positively.
