General Assembly Called Off due to Low Student Participation

On Sept. 18, HUFS 51st Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) of Seoul Campus failed to open the biannual student meeting due to a lack of student attendees.

According to school regulations, more than a tenth of the total students should be present to satisfy the quorum should the meeting take place. However, 435 out of 8,129 students showed up at Obama Hall, Minerva Complex, thwarting discussion on some important agendas. One of the topics that EPC planned to talk about was the upcoming school presidential election in November.

Conventionally, the council of HUFS professors has the sole right to elect the head of the school excluding students and faculty members as voters. To challenge the current system, the student council met with school officials on Sept. 11, and reported the details of the meeting through the paper packet distributed to the General Assembly attendees.

“A new election system could come forth next time, if there should be a unanimous consensus to promote among the board of directors, council of professors and student body,” said the Dean of Administration Support in the report.

Dean of Student Affairs agreed that it is late to change the system, saying “Careful consideration should precede any systematic changes.”
As the incumbent president Kim In-chul runs for the election of the 12th HUFS president, he will be suspended from performing his duties on Sept. 15. From that point on , the vice president will take over his position until the election comes to an end.

Previously, EPC posted a paper statement which demanded that students and faculty be allowed to cast votes for their leader. Currently, the committee plans on holding a public hearing on Sept. 19 at International Building on Seoul Campus.
