In memory of Dr Chow Yei-ching

 

Dear colleagues, students and alumni,
 

We are deeply saddened to hear that our close and long-time friend, Dr Chow Yei-ching, has passed away. We would like to offer our deepest condolences to his wife and all his family members on behalf of the CityU community. 
 
Dr Chow was not only an accomplished entrepreneur, having founded the Chevalier Group from scratch, but also a generous and conscientious philanthropist, active in charitable events and public service, because he believed strongly in giving back to the community and supporting education for a better future. 
 
His support for CityU since the early days of our development, which ranged from monetary donations to the precious time he spent sharing his successful stories with our graduate students, was highly encouraging, and his generosity will forever be appreciated. The CityU community held him in the highest esteem. In recognition of his support and generosity to the University, the graduate school was named Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies in 2007. 
 
Dr Chow, who held an Honorary Doctor of Social Science from CityU, assumed many public offices and received the highest praise from various quarters for his contribution to society and scholarly circles. 
 
Dr Chow will be greatly missed and our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

深切緬懷周亦卿博士

 
各位同事、同學及校友:
 

城大多年摯友周亦卿博士日前逝世,我們深感悲痛。謹代表大學上下,向周太太及其全體家人致以深切慰問。
 
周博士不僅為成就卓越的企業家,一手創立其士集團;也是古道熱腸、盡心盡力的慈善家,積極投身慈善事業和公共服務。他堅信回饋社會、支持教育的理念,以締造更美好未來。
 
周博士在城大發展初期已大力支持,由捐款以至撥出寶貴時間,與研究生分享其成功故事,均令大學社群大受鼓舞,對其善心永懷感激,及致以崇高敬意。研究生院於2007年命名為「周亦卿研究生院」,以表彰周博士對大學的慷慨支持。
 
周博士為城大榮譽社會科學博士,曾擔任多項公職,在社會及學術方面的貢獻獲各界高度讚譽。
 
我們深切緬懷周博士,並願其親友在這艱難時刻節哀順變。
