CUHK is committed to supporting link-building and collaborations between the CUHK community and non-governmental sectors to address issues of global/local relevance and importance. Various Faculties, Departments, Colleges and units have established and engaged students in community service programmes to make a positive difference in society. 

Established in 2013, the Global Policy Impact and Social Mission Subgroup endeavours to strengthen and coordinate efforts in students’ involvement in social programmes among different organizing units in CUHK, and to connect CUHK’s research to impact on international policy-making agencies with a view to bettering the world.
