New Asia College, The Chinese University of Hong Kong 香港中文大學新亞書院 cover
Description 新亞書院創立於一九四九年,為已故錢穆先生及一群來自內地之學者,在極艱難窮困的環境中所創辦,其目的在上溯宋明書院講學精神,旁採西歐大學導師制度,以人文主義之教育宗旨,溝通東西文化,為人類和平、社會幸福謀前途。

書院舉辦多項學術文化活動,包括錢賓四先生學術文化講座、余英時先生歷史講座、許讓成藝術交流計劃、亞洲聯合財務訪問學人計劃、及龔雪因先生訪問學人計劃等,以推動文化發展。

至於學生的課外活動則由學生會及其屬會自由組織,由新亞書院津貼經費如新亞國樂會(成立於一九六三年)、新亞國術會(成立於一九七九年)等。新亞的學生人數也不斷增加,由一九四九年的四十二人,至目前的三千多人,此可反映新亞書院的發展的一斑。

校訓:誠明
誠明二字見於中庸。中庸指:「誠者,天之道也。誠之者,人之道也。」又指:「自誠明,謂之性。自明誠,謂之教。誠則明矣,明則誠矣。」誠是德性行為方面的;明是知識暸解方面的。誠是一項實事,一項真理;明是一番知識,一番暸解。

New Asia College was founded in 1949 at a time of extreme adversity by Mr. Ch’ien Mu and other scholars from mainland China. Their objective was to establish an educational institution which combines the essence of the scholarship of the Song and Ming academies and the tutorial system of Western universities. With humanism as its basis, the College also aimed to facilitate cultural exchanges between East and West and to promote peace and well-being of the human race.

New Asia College has been carrying on its tradition of organizing academic and cultural activities to promote cultural development, including the Ch’ien Mu Lecture in History and Culture, the Yu Ying-Shih Lecture in History, the Hui Yeung Shing Exchange Programme in Fine Arts, the United Asia Finance Visiting Scholars Programme, and the New Asia S. Y. Chung Visiting Fellows Programme.

Extracurricular activities are organized by the Student Union and other student societies. The College subsidizes the activities and the student societies run them, they include the New Asia College Chinese Music Society (founded in 1963) and the New Asia College Martial Arts Society (founded in 1979). The number of students has increased from 42 in 1949 to the present 3,000, which is a good indication of the development of New Asia College over the past decades.
