Unveiling … the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Lecture Theatre and Collaboration Loop at SIT!
SIT’s future campus in Punggol gets a generous endowed gift of $1.8 million from The Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan
As part of its commitment to nurture talent and promote education, the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan (SHHK) has made a generous endowed gift of $1.8 million to the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) through its charitable arm, The Hokkien Foundation. Made in support of SIT’s future campus in the upcoming Punggol Digital District (PDD), this gift was presented at SHHK’s 180th anniversary celebrations on 15 November 2020.
In appreciation of this leadership gift, SIT has announced the naming of the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Collaboration Loop at its future campus in Punggol. A lecture theatre at SIT’s current campus in Dover has also been named the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Lecture Theatre in the interim, as the new Punggol campus is still being constructed.
Linking up academic blocks and other hubs of activity in the future campus, the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Collaboration Loop will be part of a larger mid-level pedestrian network that interconnects all of SIT and the neighbouring JTC business park in the PDD. The Collaboration Loop is designed to foster interactions between industry, academia and students, and has spaces for focused collaboration, applied innovation and serendipitous encounters. The naturally ventilated and sheltered route encourages active mobility, cuts down on travel time on foot, and overlooks a vibrant Campus Boulevard and verdant Community Park.
