香港浸會大學校長錢大康喺今日宣布,取消原訂於本月十四至十八號舉行嘅畢業典禮。錢大康指決定並不容易,但決定已考慮到所有相關因素,包括「學校設施」被破壞、有人由「浸大橋」撕物、有示威者出入校園等。

惟根據浸大編委報道,只有3間食店被破壞,包括Starbucks 。位於教學及行政大樓的餐廳及iCafe 的Pacific coffee 玻璃被打碎。

有教職員透露,高層今日朝早曾通告學系恢復邀請畢業生致辭,但黃昏突然取消晒成個畢業禮,質疑高層低能,行政決定從來沒有經過深思熟慮。

下為信件全文:

Dear Graduands, Students, Parents, and Colleagues,
Cancellation of Commencement Ceremonies
Due to grave concern about the safety of our graduating students and their parents and other guests, the University Management has decided to cancel all the commencement ceremonies originally scheduled for November 14-18.
Commencement is one of the most important events in our academic calendar and a most memorable occasion for our graduating students to join their parents and teachers in marking the proud harvest of their years of hard work and achievement. The decision to cancel it was therefore not taken lightly. It was made with a heavy heart after a thorough risk assessment that took all relevant factors into account, including protestors throwing bulky objects from the BU Bridge onto Junction Road right outside our main campus and entering the campus to vandalise our facilities.
In place of the commencement ceremonies, the Academic Registry will issue formal notifications to all graduands that would serve as the completion of formalities for degree conferment and would also contact individual graduands on the issuance / collection of academic certificates in a way that would be most convenient to the graduands.
This is a challenging time for all of us. We are deeply saddened to see the ongoing political turmoil and its tremendous impact on our community. I would like to appeal to all members of the HKBU community to stay away from harm’s way and violence. I call on our graduands, as contributing members of the community, to demonstrate to the whole of Hong Kong that we are capable of resolving all problems through imaginative, rational and peaceful means.
Roland T Chin
President
