    New vice-presidents for HKU; CX new contracts

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Karen Koh

    On Wednesday's Backchat, new vice-presidents for HKU, and new contracts for CX staff.
    Civil groups and pro-democracy district councillors on Monday voiced their opposition against a supposed plan by the University of Hong Kong to name a Mainland Professor – who they say is a Chinese Communist Party member – as a Vice President of the institution.
    They said the news is shocking and worrying, as it would undermine the university's autonomy and academic freedom.

    Why would the appointment of mainland scholars as senior management of the university would be an issue? What if they are not Party members? Should HKU be cultivating stronger links with the Mainland?
    From 9:15-9:30, we'll be discussing why it's necessary to extend the deadline for CX staff to accept their new contract.

    8:30-9:15 new vice-presidents for HKU
