Professor Edmond Ko was one of the academic initiators of the Service Leadership Initiative (SLI). This article is his discussion, written in August 2011, of the interaction of service learning and service leadership and how they can be taught in post-secondary institutions in the context of SLI proposals anticipated to be forthcoming from the eight Hong Kong University Grants Council-funded institutions. Edmond's untimely death in April 2012 was an irreplaceable loss for SLI. This posting of his essay is a small reminder of his large contribution to engineering, education, service learning and service leadership in Hong Kong.
