Abstract

In view of the many complex global issues, there is a call to re-think higher education institutions’ relationship with society and their role in improving global quality of life. Universities are now challenged to focus not only on individual institution’s interest, prestige and graduate employment prospects, but also to be socially relevant and responsible by addressing societal needs, both locally and globally. This chapter aims to present and showcase how The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has been moving with the times and fulfilling its social responsibilities while coping with the social and economic changes in Hong Kong and the region.
