He also set up the Centre for Governance and Citizenship. Prof Cheung graduated from The University of Hong Kong in 1974 with a BSocSc (Hons) degree in Sociology and Economics.

It is our great pleasure and immense honor to have Prof Cheung joining HKUST as Visiting Professor in the Institute for Public Policy (IPP).
