Social Service

The nurturing of a sense of community service has been an important element in the education of the College. The College has been exploring opportunities for service-learning. In addition to fostering CC-ers’ commitment to the community, we aim to enhance students’ personal growth and prepare them to be informed, responsible citizens and civic leaders through serving the needy.

Chung Chi is the only College in CUHK that has established a Service-Learning Centre, and some of the programmes in the Centre are combined with the College General Education curriculum for senior year students.

In addition, “Seeds of Good Deeds Project Award” was established to encourage CC-ers to contribute to the betterment of society.


Service-Learning Programme

Service-Learning Programme is one of the four College General Education elective courses for higher year students, the other three electives are Exploration and Discovery Study Scheme, Innovation and Knowledge Application and Senior Seminar.


Through planning and provision of services, CC-ers not only come into close contact with different people in need, build up connection and commitment to the community, but can also reflect on the knowledge and skills learnt in class and explore their own potential.


CC-ers are offered opportunities to serve the needy in different parts of the world, including mainland China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, India, Cambodia, etc. Service targets include elderlies, rehabilitated substance abusers, ethnic minorities, children with developmental delay, mentally handicapped people, abandoned animals, etc.
