Dr. Cheryl Hiu-kwan CHUI

Dr Chui has a joint appointment as Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Work and Social Administration and the Faculty of Businesses and Economics at the University of Hong Kong. Her research focuses on the intersections between third sector, social policies, and the well-being of vulnerable population groups. Specifically, she examines the role of civil society actors including nonprofits, social enterprises, social businesses and other hybrid organizations in facilitating positive change at the individual, community, and policy levels. Her works on nonprofit management, social innovation and entrepreneurship, and community development have been extensively published in peer reviewed journals. More recently, she is leading several projects investigating the interface between social entrepreneurship, and inclusion of people with differences. As both a researcher and a registered social worker, Dr Chui advocates for cross-sector, socially innovative, and community-based solutions in face of increasingly complex societal challenges. She is principal and co-investigator to external competitive research grants funded by the Research Grants Council; government-commissioned projects funded by the Labour and Welfare Bureau, the Policy Innovation and Coordination Office (PICO), and the Equal Opportunities Commission; and charitable organizations-commissioned evaluation and impact assessment projects funded by HK Jockey Club Charities Trust, Swire Charitable Trust (HK), and Hong Kong Housing Society. Dr Chui is actively involved in knowledge exchange activities and works closely with both local and international nonprofit organizations. Prior to joining HKU, she received her BA in International Development Studies from McGill University in Canada.
