University Announcement: In memory of Dr Chow Yei-ching 深切緬懷周亦卿博士
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.
President and University Distinguished Professor
