University Social Responsibility Goals

As a responsible public institution, CUHK is committed to addressing society’s greatest challenges and contributing to the well-being of the global community. University social responsibility (USR) provides a set of values and principles that enable us to resolve and overcome the great challenges we face.

In our Strategic Plan 2021–2025 (‘CUHK 2025’), we declared our intention to position CUHK as a 21st-century civic university striving for excellence with a purpose and embracing social responsibility for sustainable development.  The university has demonstrated its commitment to USR by seeking an appropriate balance between social, economic and environmental considerations in the quest for sustainable development.

As we look towards the future, CUHK remains committed to nurturing great minds that will shine a light on the world’s grand challenges and make a positive impact on society.
