Description

History

Starting in 2012, each of the undergraduate programmes at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (‘CUHK’ / ‘the University’) reverts back to the Four-year Academic Structure. To cater for the expected increase in student numbers and to provide students with more freedom of choice, the University has established five new colleges. This decision acknowledges the higher levels of interaction which come about when people live and learn together on a smaller scale.

S. H. Ho College was established in May 2006 with generous donations from The S. H. Ho Foundation Limited. The College admitted its first cohort of students in August of 2010 and has accommodated a full complement of 600 students on a fully residential and communal dining basis since 2012.

The students who are admitted to S. H. Ho College do not just enter a college. They find a home away from home. Throughout their undergraduate studies, all students will live in one of two spacious modern hostels and will dine with the master and other members of the College three times per week. Adopting a fully residential and communal dining system, the College is home to 600 students.
Motto, Emblem, Vision, Mission
Motto
Culture, Morals, Devotion, Trustworthiness
The College draws its motto from the Analects of Confucius, which have had such a profound influence on Asian and world thought. In them we read:

The Master [Confucius] instructs under four heads: culture, moral conduct, doing one’s best and being trustworthy in what one says.” (Analects VII,25)

Ancient Chinese texts also reveal how followers may best put these different concerns into practice:

Tsang Tzu said, “Every day I examine myself on three counts. In what I have undertaken on another’s behalf, have I failed to do my best? In my dealings with my friends have I failed to be trustworthy in what I say? Have I failed to practise repeatedly what has been passed on to me?” ’

The Master said, “The superior man advances in virtue, and cultivates all the sphere of his duty. His leal-heartedness and good faith are the ways by which he advances in virtue.”

Emblem

The five golden lines on a blue ground that dominate the College’s emblem derive from the Chinese character ‘jia’ [家] meaning ‘home’. Their gable-like shape and open appearance speaks of the College as a sheltered yet freely accessible place where teachers and students can together live, learn and grow. At the same time their convergence towards the centre subtly reflects the character [人] which means ‘ren’ (‘people’), and can thus be seen as symbolic of cultural exchange among all peoples. The gradation in thickness of the lines suggests variety and progress. Finally the blue of the ground represents globalization and a wide ranging spirit, while the gold of the lines, the Chinese characters and the English words represents the College’s desire to achieve the highest possible goals.

Vision
To nurture students with
– a refined appreciation of culture
– high moral standards
– a strong sense of responsibility and integrity

Mission
The College is a home away from home for its members. Through full residence and whole person education programmes, students will advance in the four virtues of the College motto—culture, morals, devotion and trustworthiness.
