Today, I would like to invite the edX global community of learners and partners to join me in congratulating and thanking the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU)!
The congratulations today comes as the internationally renowned university celebrates its 80th Anniversary! Since 1937, HK PolyU has been fueled by a mission to provide students with an education that prepares them to become global citizens through quality learning and teaching, as well as experiential services to the needy. The institution is recognized for excellence in professional education and innovative research, and its graduates have contributed their knowledge and expertise to building Hong Kong’s thriving economy and improving the world.
In addition to this momentous anniversary occasion, there is another exciting announcement to share – HK PolyU has joined the edX University Advisory Board (UAB) as a contributing charter member. The UAB is made up of senior academic leaders from edX’s global university partners and they serve as the chief advisory body to our company.
We are especially delighted to announce that HK PolyU is the first University from Asia to join the UAB. Their contributions to edX demonstrate our shared commitment to provide access to high-quality online education to all learners, everywhere. I encourage you to explore the incredible online courses and programs offered by HK PolyU on edx.org, especially their innovative MicroMasters program in International Hospitality Management, which begins on January 12, 2018.
I would like to take the time to thank HK PolyU for its commitment to online learning and the future of edX, we are excited to continue our valued partnership and develop more innovative content for learners worldwide.
