Research findings has shown that there are developmental issues and concerns regarding the development of university students in Hong Kong. First, there were behavioral and lifestyle problems of university students, including alcohol consumption, internet addiction, cyber-pornography, irregular sleep patterns, and interpersonal violence. Second, phenomena of mental health problems of university students, such as suicidal ideation, depression, and anxiety problems were observed. Third, some university students showed problems in setting personal goals, low self-confidence and preoccupation with materialistic values.

Finally, egocentrism and lack of civic engagement was not uncommon amongst university students. How should we nurture university students? Against this background, a subject entitled “Tomorrow’s Leaders” was developed at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong, China. The term “tomorrow’s leaders” was used because we believe that every student is (and can be) a leader and development of positive youth development attributes is an important step. In this book you will find chapters describing this pilot project to nurture positive development and leadership among Chinese university students in Hong Kong. (Imprint: Nova)
