Ho College last year, the University Council approved on 22 May the acceptance of donations for the establishment of two additional new colleges — C.W. Chu College and Wu Yee Sun College. Last year, the University reaffirmed its commitment to further develop and strengthen the college system in its Ten-year Strategic Plan , which was adopted by the Council. To cater for about 3,000more undergraduates upon the reversion to a four-year curriculum in 2012, new colleges of small and medium size will be built. Prof. Lawrence J. Lau, the Vice-Chancellor, said, ‘The Chinese University of Hong Kong takes great pride in its college system, whichwith its intimate environment for interaction and learning has contributed in very significant ways to the quality of the students through general education and non-formal learning.’ The mission of the new colleges is to foster an intimate and collegial community where students and academic staff learn, share and grow intellectually; to provide an environment for congenial college life and learning for students; to provide pastoral care and whole-person education including general education for students; to broaden and to internationalize the students’ perspective through college formal and non-formal education programmes and overseas exchange. C.W. College is established with an initial donation of HK$100 million from Mr. Peter Yip, founder of CDC Corporation. It will cater for 300 students on a fully residential and communal dining basis.
