In Memory of Dr. Lee Shiu

The University is deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Lee Shiu, the recipient of an Honorary University Fellowship from HKBU in 2020, on 29 May 2021.

Dr. Lee was the Chairman of the Lee Shiu Family Foundation, and he was well known among Hong Kong’s universities as a leading educational philanthropist. He was a man of admirable qualities who inspired great affection, and years after his retirement, he remained concerned about the future of the next generation.

Among his various charity endeavours, Dr. Lee gave education the highest priority. From the 1990s onwards, Dr. Lee donated generously to local universities, and he sponsored different academic activities as well as scholarships and prizes. He also initiated and sustained forward-looking projects that offered unique learning experiences to students in Hong Kong and the Mainland.

Dr. Lee was the Honorary Permanent President of the HKBU Foundation, and he provided wise counsel on HKBU’s governance and development as a member of the Court from 1999 to 2005. He started to leave his footprints at HKBU in the 1990s, and over the years, he generously supported the University’s various endeavours. In 1999, he co-organised the “China Nationwide Tertiary Level Essay Contest” at HKBU, and the competition encouraged young Chinese minds to develop their knowledge of science and technology as well as the field ofeconomics.

The University community would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to the Lee family at this time of bereavement. Dr. 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.
