Tzu Chi Collegiate Association

About This Organization

TCCA, TC, and Tzu Ching
The goals of the Tzu Chi Collegiate Association (TCCA) are to promote morals, strengthen character, instill a spirit of "great mercy even to strangers, and great compassion for all," exemplify humility, respect and elegance in character, and become an example for all young people of the community.
We believe this is achieved through action and vice versa; these morals are the foundation of our actions.

TCCA promotes, develops and executes the four major Tzu Chi missions: charity, medicine, education and culture. At the collegiate level, we focus on doing volunteer and community service.
