New Asia College (Chinese: 新亞書院) is a constituent college of the Chinese University of Hong Kong located in Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong.

History[edit]

New Asia College was founded in 1949 by Chinese scholars Ch'ien Mu (Qian Mu), Tang Junyi (Tang Chun-i), and Zhang Pijie (Tchang Pi-kai), in Hong Kong, then a British dependency, after the Communist victory in mainland China.[1]

In 1963, the College joined forces with United College and Chung Chi College to form the Chinese University of Hong Kong under a charter granted by the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. The College has since then become a research and educational hub for Confucian philosophy and Chinese studies.[1]
