City University of Hong Kong is committed to providing a quality learning environment to students and the community. To enhance academic ambience and stimulate intellectual vitality, the University invites world renowned scholars and high calibre figures of the community to deliver distinguished university lectures on a wide range of interesting topics to the university community and members of the public.

With the approval of the Council, CityU’s long-standing distinguished lecture series is renamed “Way Kuo Distinguished Lecture Series” in May 2023 in honour of President Way Kuo’s outstanding achievements and contributions. President Kuo will continue to serve as Emeritus President, a title awarded by the Council, and as Senior Fellow at the Hong Kong Institute for Advanced Study.

The “Way Kuo Distinguished Lecture Series” will continue to serve as a platform for the university community to listen to, meet, and discuss with distinguished speakers and interact with their academic counterparts from other educational and research institutions. It encourages the introduction of new and exciting ideas and offers a forum for the exchange of knowledge. The content of the “Way Kuo Distinguished Lecture Series” will be technical in nature but presented in a manner that an educated non-expert could understand.
