In appreciation of the generous support of the Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund (SHECF), a lecture theatre at the Creative Media Centre (CMC) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been named the Shun Hing Lecture Theatre. David Sun, Council Chairman of CityU, Way Kuo, President of CityU and David Mong, Chairman of SHECF officiated at the naming ceremony on May 8, 2012.
"The Shun Hing Group has become a role model for responsible corporate citizens by contributing enormous efforts to the education of the younger generation for the building of a prosperous society. The effort that the Group has put into fostering talent for the new media and creative industries has boosted the development of the School of Creative Media and the University as a whole," said David Sun.
"The Shun Hing Group concurs with the mission of CityU and appreciates the University's devotion to creative media education. As a forerunner in professional creative media education, the School of Creative Media at CityU provides programmes that meet the critical need for qualified and multi-talented individuals," said David Mong.
Designed by the internationally renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, the CMC opened last October. It is the permanent home of the School of Creative Media and will also house the Department of Computer Science, Department of English, Department of Media and Communication, and the Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media. The 160-square-metre Shun Hing Lecture Theatre located on Level 3 is equipped with a comprehensive multi-media visual and audio system and has a seating capacity of 110.
