Embracing Diversity & Inclusion

HSUHK welcomes students from different backgrounds and cultures. We advocate the value and importance of diversity in the university. We believe in being exposed to a diversity of thoughts, backgrounds, ethnicities and religions in order to enhance students’ personal development. Prejudice and unfair assumptions are obstacles to an inclusive community. How can we overcome them?
