聖若瑟大學加入國際天主教大學聯盟

(本報訊)2015年12月,聖若瑟大學正式被接納為國際天主教大學聯盟 (IFCU) 會員,成為中國在該聯盟的唯一會員。
國際天主教大學聯盟的宗旨是透過科學,道理和與不同文化及宗教之間的對話建構更公義及人道的世界。國際天主教大學聯盟在不少國際組織中享有顧問地位,包括在紐約的聯合國、瑞士日内瓦的聯合國人權委員會、巴黎的聯合國教科文組織及在維也納的聯合國葯物和犯罪問題辦公室等等。

目前國際天主教大學聯盟在世界各地約有220位成員大學,當中包括葡萄牙天主教大學、台灣的輔仁大學、波士頓學院、芝加哥洛約拉大學、英國的利茲三一大學和聖瑪利大學。被接納為國際天主教大學聯盟的會員是聖瑟若大學對成為世界級天主教大學學府的另一挑戰。


USJ Joint IFCU in December 2015

As of December 2015, the University of Saint Joseph has been accepted as a member of the International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU), becoming the first and only member in China.

The mission of the Federation is to contribute to the building of a more just and humane world, through science, reason and a persistent dialogue between cultures and religions. And it enjoys consultative status with international organizations including the United Nations in New York, the Commission of Human Rights in Geneva, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna.

Currently, the IFCU has approximately 220 members around the world including the Catholic University of Portugal, Fu Jen Catholic University in Taiwan, Leeds Trinity University and Saint Mary’s University in the UK, Boston College and Loyola University of Chicago. Being accepted as a member of the federation is an added challenge for USJ to become a world-class Catholic University.
