Since we think university students are the “cream of the crop”, it is important to ask whether or not 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? Leadership and intrapersonal development are inherent requirements for university students in Hong Kong, transposing as 3-credit courses that each student must complete in order to graduate. To meet this requirement, a subject entitled “Tomorrow’s Leaders” was developed and piloted twice during the 2010-2012 academic years, which was offered to more than 2,100 students annually. The design of the subject, curriculum materials, reflection of the teachers and evaluation findings in connection with this subject are presented in this book.
