Community Works Institute in China

We have partnered with The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) to advance their curriculum based work with service-learning. CWI’s Joe Brooks recently led a series of professional development workshops for CUHK faculty around service-learning and community engagement.

Founded in 1963, CUHK is a forward looking comprehensive research university with a global vision and a mission to combine tradition with modernity, and to bring together China and the West. CUHK teachers and students hail from all around the world.

CWI salutes the visionary leadership of CUHK for providing 21st century learning opportunitiesor their students and community. The motto of the University is ‘Through learning and temperance to virtue’. These words of Confucius have long been considered a principal precept of his teaching. It is recorded that Confucius says, ‘The superior man, extensively studying all learning, and keeping himself under the restraint of the rules of propriety, may thus likewise not overstep what is right.’ In choosing its motto, the University is laying equal emphasis on the intellectual and moral aspects of education. learn more about PD opportunities from CWI
