College Founder – Dr. LI Wo-hing

"The ultimate goal of education is to enhance the quality of the human race. At Lee Woo Sing College, we aim at nurturing leaders for Hong Kong, the Mainland and the World. An important feature of the College is the emphasis on tolerance and fraternity. Students will be encouraged to be thankful and to give back to the community."

Dr. LI Wo-hing, the College Founder, has great admiration and respect for his brother Dr. LEE Woo-sing's long-term commitment to the advancement of education, and his passion and contributions in nurturing talent for the nation and Hong Kong. The new College will therefore be named Lee Woo Sing College to recognize his selfless public service.
