Alumni Activities
21 October, 2018

The annual “Walking with Lingnanians” Fundraising Walkathon was held on 21 October with over a thousand students, teachers, alumni and friends of Lingnan University participating the event. The donation of this event was raised for the University development and provides financial support to students in need, especially those being the first generation in their families who receive university education to enjoy all-round student development programmes.

“Graduation Bear Donation Campaign” is an opportunity for commemorating your graduation by giving back to your alma mater.  Your donation will help your alma mater’s development and support the future students.

Upon donating HK$200 or above, a Lingnan University Graduation Bear will be offered as a token of appreciation.

嶺南大學在國學研究上有光榮的傳統,前輩學者為我們創下了豐厚的國學積澱。我們曾經有過輝煌燦爛的時刻,雖然由於衆所周知的歷史原因,陳寅恪、容庚、王力,這些國寶級的大師猶如流星一般划過嶺大的星空,轉瞬即逝,然而卻在我們後輩的心中點燃了不滅的薪火。在新的時代,我們嶺南大學中文系的同仁,沐浴前輩之遺澤既久,不顧學力之微淺,常思有以報效社會之機遇。於兹秉承博雅教育之宗旨,在利榮達中國文學講座教授蔡宗齊先生的大力推動下,決定設立“嶺南大學國學堂”,向社會義務普及國學教育,以惠及香港各行各業之市民。嚶其鳴矣,求其友聲!在此,我們要特別感謝田家炳基金會,國學堂計劃有幸得蒙她的親睞,終使我們的夙願得以成爲現實!

國學堂將以普通文化程度之公衆人士(中學師生優先)為對象,以講座的形式,義務授課。每年舉辦六場講座。在講座的開始階段,我們將以本系師資為主開設;在講座的推廣階段,我們將邀請大中華各地區頂尖的國學研究學者,以及能說流利漢語的西方傑出漢學家。演講之範圍將涵蓋中國傳統學問之各個方面,演講之角度也將不拘一格,豐富多采。

國學堂的所有講座都免費。凡兩年之内,出席講座次數滿十次者,可獲得頒發結業證書。
