Contributing Partners: Edith Shih (M.A. '77; Ed.M. '78)

Head Group General Counsel and Company Secretary, Hutchison Whampoa

Shih established and has supported the Edith Shih Scholarship Fund for TC master’s and doctoral students from Asia.

Favorite TC Professor:
Clifford Hill. Beyond providing a solid, positive learning experience, he taught me humility. Because of him, despite leaving the education field, I have never ceased to be a teacher.

Key TC experience:
New York City ’s challenges and enrichment of my life provided a learning experience that no other educational institution can engineer.

Why I support TC:
Financial support by others enabled me to receive a superb education. I want to help others benefit from the same positive experience, especially students from developing countries.
