About Student Development
The world is becoming a close global village. Students at The University of Hong Kong are the privileged few. Many students are concerned about the social and global challenges and what they can do to make a difference.
HKU promotes a whole person education approach which combines learning in classroom and outside. CEDARS is committed to working with the faculties to provide educational opportunities for students outside classrooms. The educational aims of HKU are to foster students' ability in intercultural understanding, commitment to global citizenship, and preparing them to be leaders and advocates for improvements of human conditions.
