In Memory of Dr Tin Ka-ping

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr Tin Ka-ping. We would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to his family.

A well-respected philanthropist and devoted educator, Dr Tin made a selfless and enormous contribution to education development in Hong Kong and the Mainland through the Tin Ka Ping Foundation, which he established as early as the 1980s. We are indebted to the generous donations from the Foundation, which have made many impactful and meaningful projects possible at the University for the advancement of teacher education. In 2003, the University (the then Hong Kong Institute of Education) conferred upon Dr Tin the title of Doctor of Education, honoris causa.

A member of the Advisory Board of the Foundation, President Professor Stephen Cheung Yan-leung grieves the passing of Dr Tin. He said, “Education was very close to the heart of Dr Tin throughout his life. Over the decades, he was committed to realising his vision of making education accessible to all in the Greater China region, and his generosity extended to social betterment and philanthropic work as well. The passing of Dr Tin is indeed a great loss to the region, and he will be forever missed.”
