The Residential College 4 (RC4) is headed by Prof Choo Chiau Beng, former Chief Executive of Keppel Corp, as its Rector, and Associate Professor Lakshminarayanan Samavedham as its Master.
The ambitious and vitally important goal of RC4 is teaching and learning that will help catalyze a generation of systems citizens in Singapore and inspire similar programs throughout Asia. Systems citizens view themselves as members of a global community. They are equipped with tools to understand the complex challenges that our human species faces. They have the capacity both to envision a more humane, sustainable future for humankind and to help create it. Among problem-areas RC4 students may choose to study are sustainable development, addiction, crime, economic cycles, conflict-development-linkages, cities growth and decline, spread of infectious diseases, global development and many more.
To integrate academic and personal life in a residential setting to develop systems thinking using interdisciplinary issues, foster all round student development through in- and out- of-class learning experiences and nurture a spirit of concern and care in students for all living beings and the environment.
