University Announcement: In memory of Dr Chan Sui-kau 深切緬懷陳瑞球博士 2018-04-03

In memory of Dr Chan Sui-kau


Dear Colleagues, Students and Alumni,

The whole University community felt distressed when we heard the sad news that Dr Chan Sui-kau, a good friend of CityU and an accomplished Hong Kong entrepreneur and philanthropist, passed away on 27 March at the age of 93.

Dr Chan was the founder of Yangtzekiang Garment Limited and the YGM Group, and held an Honorary Doctorate in Social Science from CityU. He served as Life Honorary President of the Federation of Hong Kong Garment Manufacturers and was the founding Chairman of Textile Council of Hong Kong. In addition to his significant contributions to the social and economic advancement of Hong Kong, he was very generous in supporting education in Hong Kong and mainland China. Dr Chan was known not only for his vision and expertise as an entrepreneur, but also for his love of Hong Kong. He was amiable, kind, temperate and honourable. And because of these qualities, everyone at CityU who had the opportunity to make his acquaintance called him “Uncle Kau”.

Over the years, CityU has made commendable progress thanks in part to Uncle Kau’s kind and generous donations and wise advice. In recognition of his contribution in supporting CityU’s development, Student Residence Hall 5 was named “Chan Sui Kau Hall” in 2006, and in 2013, Multi-function Hall A, next to Chan Sui Kau Hall, was named “Moon Chun Multi-function Hall” in memory of Ms Lam Moon-chun, Uncle Kau’s late wife. Uncle Kau was an Honorary Member of the CityU Eminence Society. He showed tremendous concern for the growth of CityU students and was personally involved in and gave talks at Student Residence High Table Dinners to share his struggles and experience, and to encourage students to discover, explore, pursue their dreams and develop their future careers.

Uncle Kau will be greatly missed and our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

深切緬懷陳瑞球博士


各位同事、同學及校友:

城大的好朋友、香港著名工業家及慈善家陳瑞球博士以耆壽之年於3月27日仙逝。驚聞噩耗,全校上下甚感悲悼。

陳博士是長江製衣有限公司及YGM集團創辦人,城大榮譽社會科學博士,香港製衣業總商會永遠榮譽會長及香港紡織業聯會創會會長,不僅對香港社會經濟發展貢獻巨大,而且樂善好施、熱心贊助香港以及大陸的教育,功勛卓著。陳博士不僅有企業家的雄才韜略,更有一顆愛港如家的心。他為人親和、慈祥,溫良中正,凡是與他接觸過的城大同仁都親昵地稱他為「球伯」。

多年來,城大有幸獲球伯垂愛捐助,出謀獻策,取得了堪以稱道的成績。為表揚球伯支持城大發展的貢獻,城大於2006年把第五座學生宿舍命名為「陳瑞球堂」,又於2013年把與「陳瑞球堂」相鄰的多用途活動中心A命名為「滿珍綜合禮堂」,以紀念球伯已故夫人林滿珍女士。球伯為校友組織「城賢匯」 榮譽會員,他十分關心城大同學的成長,積極參與學生活動,多次親身出席宿舍高桌晚宴及作演講,與學生分享他的成功及奮鬥經驗,鼓勵同學們探索求知,追尋理想、開展事業。

我們將永遠懷念球伯,並向他的家人與親朋致以最深切的慰問。
