香港大學校務委員、前嶺南大學校長陳坤耀,被指有份質疑陳文敏沒有博士學位,無資格擔任副校長一職,外界揣測陳坤耀在周二(9月29日)的校委會會議上,有份投票反對任命陳文敏。有嶺南舊生在陳坤耀的facebook個人帳戶留言質問,並表示失望,獲得回應。陳坤耀回覆指不能披露自己的投票決定,但可以向同學保證,他是在考慮客觀事實後,基於自己的良心及專業和學術判斷而作出投票決定,沒有受任何外力或政治影響。

港大學生會會長馮敬恩日前在個人聲明中披露陳坤耀在校委會議上的發言:

「陳坤耀又引述自己的資料搜集,指陳文敏鮮有在學術期刊發表文章,或成為學術文章的主要作者,又質疑其資歷不及其他副校長,又指陳文敏本人連博士學位亦沒有,怎會有資格處理有博士學位人士的應徵。」

陳坤耀其後向傳媒否認有說過這番意思的說話,但沒有交代詳情。他今天在回應舊生的回應中,指自己的發言是完全有關副校長招聘廣告上提及的基本要求,沒有涉及其他事情。

陳坤耀回應全文:

Dear Lingnan students, I understand your frustrations and your concern about my role in the recent HKU Council decision. As students of liberal arts education, I am sure you can be more reasoned, rational, tolerant and considerate than others. I think you should not ask me which side I voted for, which is not the crust of the matter. What is most important is the basis on which I cast my vote. If someone voted against your wish, it is not always true that he/she is wrong or be condemned. We should be able to agree to disagree. What I can solemnly assure all of you is that (1) my decision was under no outside/political influences; it was a decision on the basis of my conscience, my own academic and professional judgement with the due consideration of objective facts, and (2) what I said at the meeting was totally related to the primary prerequisite for the post as stated in the advertisement for the post, and nothing else. Discussion at the meeting had to be kept confidential for free deliberation and in the case of human resources because of the privacy of the candidate. Best wishes to you all. You are all still very wonderful!!

獲陳坤耀回應的嶺南舊生原貼內容:

明白你有公職在身,以往你在嶺南同學心目中得光環,在港大校委會中消失了。 雞蛋與高牆,我選擇的雞蛋的一邊,你呢?

相比袁醫生,你沒有在關鍵時刻表明你對是非的看法,我失望。
希望你明白689先生也沒有什麼博士名涵,而根據報導國際有名的學院,副校長也不一定需要博士, 最諷刺的是,689身為8大院校的校監也沒有博士資格,所以如果需要公平得話,中國共產黨的領導人需要博士? 香港行政長官需要?


生活安好 能睡能吃 做人如明月常真

P.S. 拋磚引玉,希望其他學長學弟也能出文發表意見,感謝
