Description

嶺南大學溯源於1884年,兩位來自美國長老會的牧師--安德魯•哈巴牧師及香便文牧師倡議,於中國成立一所基督教教會高等學校,為整個中國服務。

長老會通過哈巴牧師建議,於1888年於廣州沙基金利埠創立「格致書院」,並委任哈巴牧師為創校校長。後哈巴牧師因病回國,書院於1891年停辦,直至1899年於廣州市四牌樓福音堂內重啟「格致書院」運作。後來又因時局動盪而遷校澳門,中文校名改為「嶺南學堂」。

Lingnan University traces its origins back to 1884. Two members of the American Presbyterian Mission at Canton, Dr. A. P. Happer and Rev. B. C. Henry, proposed that there should be a Christian College in China serving the whole nation.

The proposal was officially approved by the American Presbyterian Mission, "Christian College in China" was established at Golden Wharf at Shakee in January 1888, with Dr. Happer appointed as the first President of school. The college was later suspended in 1891 when Dr. Happer returned to USA due to health condition, and was reopened in 1899 at the Gospel Church at Sipailou in Guangzhou. The College was later relocated to Macau due to turmoil and renamed as "Canton Christian College".
