College Introduction

Motto

 Scholarship and Perseverance

《The Doctrine of the Mean》 Chapter 20 “One must make extensive study of what is good, examine it with a critical eye, reflect upon it with care, judge it with a clear mind, and carry it out earnest”

 

To complement the academic training offered by the various faculties and departments, the College proudly carries the collegiate tradition – a hallmark of a CUHK undergraduate education – in providing students with comprehensive whole-person education and pastoral care, thereby developing them into learned and upright leaders and citizens in the society.

Mission

Entrepreneurial Spirit with Social Responsibility

Emblem

The College was established with a generous donation from Wu Yee Sun Charitable Foundation Limited. Dr. Wu Yee Sun, the founder of Wing Lung Bank, cultivated a keen interest in the art of penjing (盆景) and won the accolade of the ‘Sage of Penjing’ (盆聖). The college emblem is characterized by a bonsai of pine tree. Pine tree endures cold in winter, here it is likened to the indomitable spirit of perseverance and the College’s mission to nurture the future generation. The emblem resembles a jade pendant with ornate carve hinting the humble and receptive attitude of a gentleman. The shape also resembles an ancient coin which reflects the profession of Dr. Wu.
