April 24, 2018

Congratulations to the UChicago Alumni Club of Hong Kong on receiving the 2018 Alumni Club of the Year Award!

The Alumni Club or Affinity Group of the Year Award seeks to recognize volunteers who demonstrate the following: strong leadership, thoughtful use of the grant program and other resources, a clear contribution towards the Campaign engagement goal, and a strong all-around impact on their alumni community. Nominations were submitted and reviewed by Alumni Association staff, who have decided that the work in Hong Kong best embodied these goals. Thank you for the efforts of the Hong Kong Alumni Club this past academic year! 

This award confirms their efforts to serve as the ambassadors for the University of Chicago in Hong Kong through a commitment to inclusion and diverse alumni community. Their commitment to an expansion of an engaged alumni network and enhanced volunteerism and leadership in greater China is also recognized, which is most notably showcased in the club’s efforts to spearhead development in Shenzhen and Taiwan, an emphasis on connectivity with other alumni leaders in China, and strong relationship-building with University staff and administrators in Chicago and Hong Kong. In addition, their work with University leadership to provide support for the Francis and Rose Yuen Center in Hong Kong opening in 2018 is much appreciated.

Let’s continue the outstanding efforts to engage local alumni and build the UChicago community in Hong Kong together!
