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 in 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.

Through its diverse programmes of general education, college student life, as well as cultural and overseas exchanges, the College aims to broaden students’ horizons (scholarship), and encourage them to forge ahead (perseverance) in making contributions to the society leading a productive and fulfilling life.

院徽

伍宜孫書院承蒙獲伍宜孫慈善基金會慷慨捐助,得以創立。伍宜孫博士不但是永隆銀行的創辦人,亦是盆景藝術家,素有­「盆聖」之稱。院徽設計特以松樹盆景作主題,因松樹耐寒,象徵了堅毅不屈的精神,這與書院貫徹培育下一代的志向不謀而合;配合仿如玉珮般優雅華麗的雕刻線條,盡展含蓄內歛、君子風度翩翩的意境。呈圓形的院徽設計亦仿如古代銅幣,映照出伍博士的創立永隆銀行故事。
