University Announcement: In memory of Dr Tin Ka-ping 深切緬懷田家炳博士 2018-07-12

In memory of Dr Tin Ka-ping

 
Dear colleagues, students and alumni,
 
The entire University community has expressed its deep sorrow over the passing of renowned industrialist and philanthropist Dr Tin Ka-ping on 10 July.
 
Dr Tin was not only a successful entrepreneur, but also someone who cared deeply about the community and supported education generously. In the early 1980s, Dr Tin established the Tin Ka Ping Foundation, whose mission is to support education to nurture talent, promote Chinese culture, and contribute to the community and the nation. It is also dedicated to supporting community service on the mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Dr Tin was held in the highest regard for his outstanding service and many contributions.
 
CityU has had a long relationship with Dr Tin and the Tin Ka Ping Foundation, and has received many generous donations from them over the years. In recognition of their support and great kindness, the University named a lecture theatre after Dr Tin as early as in 2004, with a plaque engraved with his motto, “To help others, you are helping yourself. To help develop others, you must first develop yourself”.
 
While Dr Tin has passed away, his spirit of caring for the community and supporting education will continue, encouraging all CityU staff and students to continue to pursue excellence in teaching and research in order to promote social development and to continually strive to make the world a better place.

深切緬懷田家炳博士

 
各位同事、同學及校友:
 
香港著名實業家及慈善家田家炳博士七月十日於耆宿之年安詳仙逝,城大上下聞之深感悲悼。
 
田博士不僅事業成功,而且關心公益事務、熱心捐助教育,早在上世紀八十年代初即創立田家炳基金會,以「興學育才,推廣文教,回饋社會,貢獻國家」為宗旨,致力在兩岸四地捐辦社會公益事業,功勳卓著,貢獻良多。
 
田博士和基金會與城大淵源甚深。多年來,城大多次獲得田博士和基金會的捐贈。為表彰田博士及基金會對城大的支持和厚愛,城大早於2004年即以田家炳之名命名演講廳,廳內並刻有田博士的座右銘:「利人必能利己,己立才能立人。」
 
田家炳博士雖然離世而去,他關心公益、贊助教育的精神將與我們同在,並將激勵城大全體同仁及學生持續追求教研卓越,促進社會發展及人類進步。
