International Connection Programme

International Connection Programme

The International Connection Programme is an upcoming initiative set to launch in the academic year 2024/25. This programme is designed to promote cultural integration on campus through mentoring, global leadership development, and cross-cultural interaction. Its primary objective is to facilitate personal growth and development for both mentors and mentees by focusing on three key elements: Mentoring, Global Leadership, and Cross-Cultural Interaction.

Cultural Exchange Mentoring Network

The Cultural Mentorship Network is designed connects experienced mentors with mentees, creating a supportive environment for guidance, support, and the sharing of experiences. Mentors, who possess a profound understanding of cultural integration and campus life, play a vital role in providing valuable insights and assisting mentees in navigating their academic and social journey at CUHK.

Through the Cultural Mentorship Network, mentees have the opportunity to benefit from the wisdom and expertise of their mentors. These mentors serve as trusted guides, offering guidance, sharing personal experiences, and providing valuable resources to help mentees navigate the challenges and opportunities of their university experience. Mentors also foster cultural awareness and facilitate the integration of mentees into the vibrant campus community.

Global Leadership Development

The Global Leadership Development series offers a comprehensive range of workshops, seminars, and activities designed to cultivate participants’ understanding of intercultural communication, diversity, and inclusion. These transformative experiences empower participants to develop the skills and qualities necessary to become effective global leaders capable of thriving in diverse environments and making meaningful contributions to an interconnected world.

Through interactive workshops, participants will explore key topics such as cultural intelligence, effective communication across cultures, and strategies for promoting diversity and inclusion. These sessions provide a platform for participants to enhance their self-awareness, develop empathy, and acquire practical tools to navigate and excel in multicultural settings.

Intercultural Engagement Initiative 

The Intercultural Engagement Initiative actively promotes and supports mentees in engaging in cross-cultural interactions, fostering meaningful connections, and embracing diversity. Through participation in a wide array of events, workshops, and gatherings, mentees are provided with invaluable opportunities to broaden their perspectives, appreciate different cultures, and cultivate lifelong friendships.

This initiative encourages mentees to step out of their comfort zones and actively seek interactions with students from diverse cultural backgrounds. By attending intercultural events and workshops, mentees can immerse themselves in vibrant cultural experiences, gaining a deeper understanding of different traditions, customs, and perspectives. These interactions serve as catalysts for personal growth, fostering empathy, and nurturing cultural sensitivity.
