Farewell to Professor Stephen Andrews MoreClose
Professor Stephen Andrews, the Dean of the Faculty of Education, will retire effective from August 1, 2017 after 26 years of dedicated service to the University.
Joining the Faculty in September 1990, Professor Andrews was a Lecturer in English Language Education. He was promoted to professor in 2007 and took up the Deanship in 2010. The Faculty is immensely grateful to Professor Andrews for his long and dedicated service as well as distinguished contributions to the Faculty and the University. Under his inspiring leadership, the Faculty has achieved renown and is regarded as one of the best places to study education in the world. Professor Andrews was awarded the Medal of Honour for services to education by the Hong Kong Government in 2014.
A farewell reception was held for Professor Andrews on June 9, 2017 to express our gratitude for his confident leadership of the Faculty. More than hundred guests and colleagues in the Faculty, the University and the community joined the reception. Professor Andrews shared his feeling with pieces of music chosen from a song, Old Friends, by American music duo Simon & Garfunkel from their album, Bookends. Professor Peter Mathieson, the President and Vice-Chancellor, and Professor Frederick Leung, Kintoy Professor of Mathematics Education both spoke to thank Professor Andrews, expressing their appreciation of his work.
We wish Professor Andrews a happy and relaxing retirement.
