It provides strategic advice to CUHK in fulfilling its vision and achieving its goals, advises on strengthening the global profile of CUHK, and solicits resources and opportunities in support of CUHK’s advancement and its impact generating activities around the world.

Professor Rocky S. Tuan remarked, “CUHK takes pride in its distinguished alumni community, whose number and achievements rival those of the world’s premier universities. We regard it as a top priority to engage the strong alumni force in furthering the mission of the University, particularly in the current increasingly competitive, challenging and globalised environment. I am deeply grateful to the 12 new GAAB members for devoting their precious time, experience, expertise, as well as network resources who will serve as advisors and ambassadors of CUHK, to strengthen the University’s global presence and impact. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to the founding GAAB members who contributed to the University over the past two years on a number of new initiatives relating to image building, international student recruitment, student development, as well as social innovation and entrepreneurship.  We look forward to continuing our partnership in charting a path forward for the University.”
