In the middle of summer, when the UK campus is full of exuberance with plants and blossom, on 10th August 2019, the Deputy Head of Alumni Office of Peking University, Dr Xiangying Zhang, visited the UK Campus of PHBS. Representatives from UK campus and local alumni organisation, Dr Hang Li of academic administrator of the UK Campus and Dr Yijing Li of Peking University UK Coordinator welcomed Dr Zhang and hosted the alumni round-table discussion meeting with the University Alumni Officials.
In the meeting, Dr Zhang had good exchanges with alumni about how to organise alumni events and retain an effective contact with alumni in the UK. Dr Hang Li showed Dr Zhang around teaching facilities of the Campus and introduced current teaching programs. Dr Zhang expressed her proud of this initial move took by PHBS to operate independently in a developed country and the contribution made by PHBS to international communication and education. Besides, Dr Zhang stepped upon the tower of campus with the bird view of Oxford city and showed admiration to the decoration in Campus which combined Eastern and Western designing essence.
Following the Campus visit it was a round-table discussion on how to improve the quality of alumni events. At the discussion, Dr Yijing Li introduced current operation of local alumni organisation, including main locations of regional alumni organisations and various activities organised for different groups of alumni, such as seminars and sports events. After Dr Yijing Li’s report, Dr Zhang gave a brief introduction of Alumni Office of the University and its mission. Dr Zhang also highly praised the work has been done and the responsibility has been taken by the UK alumni.
During the discussion, alumni from Oxford University provided thought-provoking suggestions. They expressed challenges of operating and managing alumni office, for instance, the mobility of alumni in the UK which leads to the difficulty of liaison and event organising. At the end of discussion, Dr Zhang shed light on how to find local resources to support alumni events. With the support of the UK Campus, the link to alumni shall be further strengthened, and all of us expect more alumni events to come up for enhancing the impact of Peking University over the world.
