Public hearing of the student council of the College of Liberal Arts was held on Wednesday, November 15th at 6:30 P.M. The candidate participated was Lee Jong-min(junior, department of Korean Language and Literature) of "Moon Rabbit" party and the host was Kang Bo-min. Its order was promised and then free questions and answers continued.
The first topic was current regime's appraisal of university structural reform. The College of Liberal Arts has been targeted for reducing its students. The candidate Lee mentioned that this appraisal standard should not be the employment rate but the quality of education. He said, “Student council has to take not a passive but an active part in this situation. It was a positive stance on the admission of entrance fee. Yet, it is impossible to resign president by the power of the student council.” He stressed that he will try to gather students and then turn to the direct election system of the university president. For that, he added, “If I were elected, I would try to revitalize small groups. 'Moon Rabbit' would promote for the freshmen to join small groups. They will take priority to unify inspection system of every department and they are going to join up with the College Representative Council to do it.
In part of student welfare and convenience, he explained that he will do his best to provide space of rest area in Man-hae Hall. He clarifies his opinion of making good use of spare space, for example, both side of stairs, and replacing desks and chairs. In addition to, existing campagin for providing snacks to the students during examination period will be increased gradually more frequent than before. He showed his sympathies with sexual discrimination and a male-dominated atmosphere inside the university campus. He will push forward campagin for lending free female sanitary products. Nevertheless, he said that it is difficult to make a progress in innovative femminist campain without most students' sympathy.
He mentioned that the arbitrary reorganizing the Department of Japanese Language and Literature led by executives of university is unfair. To let this never happen again, he aruged to develop the strength of the student council. For this purpose, he will make realistic efforts through unity with other colleges.
