The College motto “ming de xin min” means “make one’s virtues shine and renew the people”. It is modified from a passage in the classic The Great Learning.
In elaborating the College motto “Make One’s Virtues Shine and Renew the People”, United College strives to serve the people of Hong Kong and China and the world through integrative education, pastoral care as well as moral and spiritual enhancement of the young.
The College Song was composed by Ms Susan Tan, daughter of Mr Chen Fong-neng Daniel, former Trustee of the College. The lyrics of the song were written by Professor C C Chan, the founding Chairman of the Chinese Department of the College.Download the College Song
