Imrie, Brad; And Others

"Principal's Diary" (Bradford Imrie) describes the significant first week in January 1993. "CHVS Commitment" (Bradford Imrie) provides an overview of the achievements of CHVS during a period of rapid growth and of considerable institutional change. More detail can be found in the section on selections from the "College Memorandum (Extracts) 1991-95." The three CHVS, "Annual Reports (Extracts)" also give an overview. Seven submissions provide insights into various issues that have been addressed since 1991: "Engineering: Professional and Vocational"; "Governor's Address at the Opening of the 1992-93 Session of the Legislative Council, Proposals: Vocational Education" (Christopher Patten); "Critical Appraisal of the Functions of the CHVS (1991-92)"; "Submission to the University and Polytechnic Grants Committee of Hong Kong: Higher Education 1991-2001"; "Teaching and Learning Quality Process Audits" (Bradford Imrie); "Assessment of Teaching and Learning Quality"; and "University and Polytechnics Grants Committee Review of Development of Higher Education in Hong Kong--Sub-Degree Work."
