In Memory of Mr Lee Siu-lun

The University is deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Lee Siu-lun, 2017 Honorary University Fellow of HKBU, on 25 January 2020. He was 98 years old.

Mr Lee was a successful entrepreneur who displayed visionary thinking. He was also a kind and caring person who dedicated himself to philanthropic pursuits, particularly in his hometown of Shunde. His active citizenship in the community and his contributions to the well-being of society made him a great role model.

Mr Lee made generous contributions towards the University’s various endeavours, including the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning, the School of Chinese Medicine and the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology. He also supported the University’s Campus Master Plan and granted financial assistance to HKBU students for organising service tours in Sichuan, Gansu. In recognition of Mr and Mrs Lee's generosity, the Learning Commons on the sixth floor of the Fong Shu Chuen Library was named the "Mr and Mrs Lee Siu Lun Learning Commons" in 2016.

The University community would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to the Lee family at this time of bereavement. Mr Lee will always be remembered for his whole-hearted support for and distinguished contributions to the development of the University and as a beloved and respected member of the HKBU community.
