《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”
Wu Yee Sun College has been established since 2007 by the generous support of the Wu Yee Sun Charitable Foundation Limited. Foundation Stone Laying Ceremony of the College was held on 9 June 2010. The College has approximately 1,200 students in total, with about 300 students joining every year. The founding class was admitted in September 2012. 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.
Through its diverse programmes of general education, college student life, as well as cultural and overseas exchanges, the College aims to broaden student’ horizons (scholarship), and encourage them to forge ahead (perseverance) in making contributions to the society leading a production and rewarding life.
Entrepreneurial Spirit with Social Responsibility
Students will develop the drive for social entrepreneurship: a passion for creativity and innovation, and acumen in pursuing new projects and ideas, not just for personal gain but for the common good.
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.
The publicity name of Wu Yee Sun College is ‘The Sunny College’: half word-play on Dr. Wu’s name and half the College vision. May the College and its members radiate positive energy and be a passionate force that makes the world a better place.
