Jockey Club “We Care, We Serve & We Learn@Tuen Mun” Programme
Jockey Club “We Care, We Serve, We Learn @ Tuen Mun” Programme is a 3-year programme sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust starting from the end of 2016. It aims to promote the concept of inter-generational collaboration and Active Ageing through working with different stakeholders including Government departments, non-governmental organizations, academia and business partners, and to create a cross-sectoral collaborative Service-Learning platform.
Office of Service-Learning
Established in 2006, the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) at Lingnan was the first independent unit in the higher education of Hong Kong dedicated to promoting and implementing civic engagement in university through Service-Learning (S-L). Closely collaborating with academic departments and a wide-range of community partners, OSL strives to provide at least 800 Lingnan students each year with enlightening learning opportunities through serving the community. In 2016-17, S-L becomes a graduation requirement, which undergraduate students are required to complete at least one 3-credit bearing S-L course before graduation.
Lingnan University is the liberal arts university in Hong Kong and we have the longest established tradition among the local institutions of higher education. Our history can be dated back to 1888, when our forerunner, the Christian College in China, was founded in Guangzhou, and to 1967, when the institution, as Lingnan College, was re-established in Hong Kong. In 2015, Lingnan University was named as one of the “Top 10 Liberal Arts College in Asia” by Forbes.
