Since its 2014 launch, the Hong Kong Global Center has been instrumental in extending Notre Dame’s presence in Asia. The Center has nurtured strong relationships with local corporations and universities, which has made student exchanges and internships more accessible. Faculty research collaborations are also possible thanks to partnerships with the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
In 2015, the Hong Kong Global Center hosted the first ever Global Forum on the theme “Ethical Leadership in a Globalized World.” The event was the first gathering of all the Notre Dame clubs of Asia, along with University leaders, alumni, parents, students and friends, and proved enormously successful. The Center was also involved in the establishment of the parents club in China and Hong Kong, and works closely with Admissions to improve student recruitment and organize send-off events for admitted students.
Visitors to urban Hong Kong will find themselves in one of the world’s financial and trade centers. There, in one of the world’s most densely populated areas, are more than 7 million people whose nationalities, religions, and languages are diverse. Hong Kong is ideally located in the Greater Bay Area and positions visitors to have access to the rest of Asia within a few hours.
