Since we think university students are the “cream of the cream”, it is important to ask whether they thrive well. To what extent can university students in Hong Kong develop in a holistic manner? How should we nurture university students to become the leaders and talents of tomorrow? As part of the general university requirements in Hong Kong is the leadership and intrapersonal development requirement, students must take one 3- credit subject on leadership and intrapersonal development. To meet this requirement, a subject entitled “Tomorrow’s leaders” was developed and piloted twice in 2010-2012, and was offered to more than 2,100 students annually in 2012-2014. The design of the subject, curriculum materials, reflection of teachers and evaluation findings in connection with this subject are presented in this book.
