Caritas Institute of Higher Education (Chinese: 明愛專上學院) (formerly known as Caritas Francis Hsu College; 明愛徐誠斌學院) is a post-secondary college in Hong Kong established by Caritas Hong Kong, with campuses located at Kowloon Tong, Kowloon and Tseung Kwan O, New Territories. The Institute is able to award Bachelor's degree or below.

It was initially named after Francis Hsu, the Bishop of Hong Kong between 1969 and 1973. Until May 2011, the college was granted the degree-conferring status and it was renamed as Caritas Institute of Higher Education as an institution for its academic awards up to sub-degree level.

The institute is currently offering Bachelor's degree (honours) in business administration, social science, and language and liberal studies; higher diploma programmes in business, computing, social sciences and language disciplines, and diploma in general studies. In the future, the institute would offer more bachelor's degree programmes in various disciplines. "Towards a Catholic University" is the recent motto of the institute.
