Ma Man Kei and Lo Pak Sam College (MLC) believes that residential college system, or liberal arts education emphasises the development of the “whole person,” where students are encouraged to take responsibility for their education, their behaviour and their career design. Our students work hard and live in a lively, peer-engaged academic and social community.
While emphasising the development of the “whole person”, MLC stresses the growth of our students’ global vision by creating for everyone an engaging, welcoming, self-educating, multi-lingual and well-mannered environment. A person with a global vision embraces different cultures and ethnic groups with a sense of community and social understanding, takes on leadership roles, solves problems and provides services to the community with well-developed group-working experience and interpersonal skills. A person with a global vision also articulates different languages and is capable of communicating with people from different social and cultural backgrounds and competent to engage in tasks and activities in any 21st-century societal context. To reach these goals, MLC provides one-on-one sessions between students and the academic staff, creates various peer-evaluated social events and activities, implements student self-governance and volunteer work-system, promotes College Etiquette Code of Conduct, invites experts and professionals to give lunch seminars and career workshops. We offer weekly language tables, sentence of the day, daily news, speech competition and language salon in order to create a multilingual speaking environment within the College so as to enhance the students’ cross-cultural communication skills.
