On September 24, a regular Korea University (KU) Student Representatives Meeting was held at the 4.18 Memorial Hall, with 80 out of 110 representatives present at the beginning. The regular meeting focused on nine agendas, including budget reports on school magazines, reconsideration on the budget report of Division of International Studies, and ratification of the Central Executive Committee.
After KU’s two school magazines, the Kodaemunwha and the Suksoon, got their budget reports approved, the Division of International Studies asked for the re-deliberation of its budget. The division provided with more detailed records, as its proposal was previously rejected in the Special Committee on Budget and Accounts due to its “incoherent and inaccurate record of transactions.”
“Concerning the Dotori Project, the project is going to be launched differently depending on the response of Seongbuk-gu Council. Therefore, we have requested enough budget to be more flexible,” Kim Bo Hyuk (’14, Political Science and International Relations), the Vice President of the KU Student Association (KUSA) explained on behalf of the Central Executive Committee. The committee’s budget proposal was approved with 62 votes, zero objection, and zero abstention.
The meeting continued for approximately six hours and came to an end around the midnight, after the approval of Division of International Studies’s budget.
