Two Mainland Chinese Scholars Appointed HKU Vice-Presidents
The University of Hong Kong (HKU)’s Council appointed Max Shen Zuojun and Gong Peng as vice-presidents for research and academic development on 27th October on a five-year term. Both scholars used to teach alongside president and vice-chancellor Zhang Xiang at the same university and their backgrounds are very similar.
HKU Alumni Concern Group convener Ip Kin-Yuen said in response that the appointment raises doubts about favouritism. He also asked the University to clarify whether Shen is a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and whether his background will affect his work at HKU. Shen made a statement shortly afterwards denying his CCP membership.
