Message from the Master

1473228930118206.pngThe Residential College is a shared space for both students and teachers to live and learn in the International Campus of Zhejiang University. It is a platform for multidisciplinary education, knowledge exchange and cultural interaction. It also provides an environment conducive to teaching and learning, with active mentorship, academic advising and experiential internship. The College also promotes self-governance of student bodies and facilitates self-directed student activities, thereby allowing our youngsters to develop to their fullest potential, achieve academic excellence and, at the same time, establish critical and independent thinking as well as high morality and ethical principles.

Building on the 120 years of great tradition at Zhejiang University, the College will work with the University of Edinburgh (through the ZJUE Institute), University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (through the ZJUI Institute) and the Institute of China Studies to allow its residents to develop a culture of new international perspectives, sense of social responsibility and caring for the welfare of humankind.

I am honored to be able to serve as the inaugural Master of this Residential College and am committed to working with you to foster a most enjoyable and rewarding living and learning environment for all.
