On September 3, a Temporary Korea University (KU) Student Representatives Meeting took place at the 4.18 Memorial Hall. There were two items on the agenda—laying down autonomous rules for university exchange events, and approving the general amendment of the KU Student Association (KUSA) rules.
The autonomous rules were drafted by KUSA, in conjunction with the Yonsei University (YU) Expansionary Steering Committee. These rules are meant to serve as a guideline for those participating in exchange programs among universities, specifically for the purpose of mediating disputes and incidents, such as sexual crimes. Ma Tae Young, the President of YU Female Student Association stated, “These rules were established in the hope that they would function as
a manual to prevent further accidents.”
The meeting proceeded to make general revisions in the KUSA rules. The amendment was approved with 74 votes in favor, zero against, and four abstaining. As the first update in 57 years, the scope of the revisions ranged from typos to amending existing rules in a more democratic direction.
