Description

1967年,嶺南大學以「嶺南書院」之名在香港復校。

前嶺南大學自1952年在廣州停辦以來,各地嶺南人對母校之懷念,無時或己,矢志以弘揚紅灰精神為己任,以興復母校為職志。在已故陳德泰學長與一群熱心校友牽頭下,本着「奮前莫畏難」的精神,發起嶺南人於1967年在港重新創辦大專課程,肩負重建嶺大,復興嶺大的重擔。

嶺南「復校」,並非指前嶺大在香港再度出現,而是指一群熱心嶺南人為着對母校之懷念和回饋,開創「嶺南書院」,以傳承前嶺南大學的良好辦學傳統和發揚紅灰精神。六十年代的香港,專上教育學額匱乏,嶺南書院創設正彌補當時專上教育之不足,實踐「作育英才•服務社會」的理想,亦奠定嶺南大學於香港高等教育的貢獻與地位。

In 1967, Lingnan University was “re-established” in Hong Kong under the name of Lingnan College.

Since the former Lingnan University ceased operation in 1952, Lingnanians from all over the world strived to continue the Spirit of Lingnan. Under the coordination of Edward Chan Tak-tai and a group of enthusiastic alumni, the formidable task of re-establishing a Lingnan institution to offer tertiary programmes had been undertaken.

“Re-establishment” does not mean the reappearance of the former Lingnan University in Hong Kong. Rather, it means the Establishment of Lingnan College in Hong Kong by a group of Lingnanians in 1967 to continue the fine tradition of Lingnan Education. Hong Kong in its 1960s ran into shortage of post-secondary places. The re-establishment of Lingnan College was a timely act to put our guiding motto - “Education for Service” into practice and to make profound impact towards the higher education development in Hong Kong.
