CUHK Symposium on Internationalization of Student Affairs Issues in Higher Education
Open for Registration



The Office of Student Affairs of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) will host the Symposium on Internationalization of Student Affairs Issues in Higher Education (SIHE(SA)) on 25-26 January 2018. It is expected around 200 people including university administrators, university student services personnel, and educational research scholars, will participate in the two-day symposium. 

Internationalization of higher education in the Asia Pacific region has developed for over more than a decade and with the full support of the higher education institutions in the region. Institutions have been offering tailor-made services to support inter-cultural integration and deal with the challenges ahead.  The symposium will serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas, for sharing effective strategies in the internationalization of higher education in student affairs and to build up a network of practitioners. 

The symposium will begin with Prof. Dennis NG, Pro-Vice-Chancellor / Vice-President of CUHK, and Mr. Jeff SZE, Political Assistant to the Secretary for Education, delivering opening remarks on internationalization issues in higher education at CUHK and in Hong Kong. Two keynote speeches and four seminars will follow.  The first of the speeches, entitled ‘The future trends in student affairs and services issues at universities’ will be delivered by Prof. Takane ITO, Special Advisor to the President (Internationalisation of Undergraduate Education) of the University of Tokyo.  The second speech, entitled ‘The core professional development of student affairs and services personnel’, will be presented by Prof. Peter PANG, Dean of Students of the National University of Singapore.  At the four seminars, speakers from Hong Kong, Macau, mainland China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, and Japan will share their experience and expertise in topics related to students’ learning in an internationalized environment, residential hall life, student oriented multi-cultural activities, as well as student services and support.
