Whole-person education is always emphasized in CUHK as a goal of both formal curriculum and non-formal education contributing to the overall quality of our students and graduates. This seminar explores the idea and implementation of whole-person education and campus culture building on following perspectives:

  1. how to incorporate whole-person education in College, especially through residential life in pandemic period;
