Social Sciences Research Centre (SSRC)

The Social Sciences Research Centre (SSRC), established in January 1987 within the Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of Hong Kong, has the following mission objectives:

  • to promote research in general, and inter-disciplinary research in particular, both within and beyond the Faculty of Social Sciences;
  • to foster ties with research institutes outside the University;
  • to explore and make arrangements for contract research and consultancy service for Government and other outside organizations;
  • to explore external funding sources in support of research programmes in the Faculty; and
  • to serve as an information clearing house on research programmes and developments in the Faculty.

Led by the Director Dr. John Bacon-Shone, the SSRC has an independent and skilled research workforce to meet the above mission objectives and sees as its responsibility co-ordination and assistance in such research so that both academics and the community at large can benefit. Many of these SSRC projects are collaborative ones with the leading team members drawn from faculties within the University or from other institutions and organisations. Interested parties should contact Ms. Linda Cho about initiating or participating in such consultancy services.

The University of Hong Kong is committed to the use of student ratings as one of the many means to improve the teaching and learning of courses. Faculties at The University of Hong Kong are encouraged to develop their own questionnaire in accordance with a general framework endorsed by the Senate Teaching Quality Committee (STQC) to assess the course, the teacher, student efforts and department-specific aspects. Results of all evaluation are traditionally made known to students via the Staff-Student Consultative Committees and appropriate action for improvements is then taken through such consultation.
