As a university located in the north-western New Territories, having an ethos of "Education for Service" and an orientation of liberal arts education, the University tries every means to provide students with not only opportunities for participation in an active campus life but also experiences to concern for the welfare of the community. Community service experiences will help our students to develop a right attitude in life, to improve communication skill, to raise the level of social awareness, and to activate own potentials.
Lingnan University is now a member organization of the Volunteer Movement organised by the Hong Kong Government. Students are encouraged to join various volunteer services launched by Student Associations and clubs of the Students' Union such as the Social Services Association, the Rotaract Club and so on. Information on various volunteer work will be promoted in LOVE website and selected information will also be sent to all students by e-mail.
