Goal, Theme, Character and CKY Tripod
The Residential College System of the University of Macau provides in each of the colleges an environment for whole-person education. Choi Kai Yau College (CKYC) is no exception. But like all the other residential colleges, we also have our own character, goals and themes. Our overall goal is to empower you by challenging you to think, and then translate your thoughts into action, hence our motto: Dare to Think; Care to Act. Within this larger goal, we also have a theme, which is centred around globalization and citizenship with a keen awareness of global issues. We then undergird these goal and theme with a strong sense of humanity. We want to create within the walls of CKYC a caring community. Not only shall we care for each other, for our private quarters as well as public areas of the College, but also for all the things that we do. In this way, as we are encouraged and emboldened to think creatively, critically, and analytically — we are both careful and caring enough to put our thoughts into action for the betterment of ourselves as persons, our College, our University, our homeland and the world.
Therefore, CKYC is built on the tripod of “Dare to Think; Care to Act”, “Citizenship with Global Awareness”, and a “Caring Community”, for Macau and the world.
